Problem with Magellan DataSend and COM ports

I recently tried to install the Magellan DataSend tool to talk to my 
GPS, and it almost works. However, I did find one funny with it - the 
program did not "see" the COM ports until I added the following entries 
into the registry:


(these were found via a file on the Magellan install CD named win95com.reg).

Perhaps these should be added to the Wine registry?

Once added, then the program would run - at least right up to the point 
where I told it to download the data to the GPS, at which point it threw 
and exception and died.
