I also have an installer (for Xilinx) that exhibits this problem. I 
created a small application that creates a single line edit control 
(which is what the Xilinx installer uses). I notice that on Win2k the 
EM_GETMARGINS message returns zero for left and right messages, but on 
Wine it returns 2 for both margins.

 From a trace, the margins are getting set to 2 in EDIT_WM_SetFont(), 
with the call:
Commenting out that single line makes the Xilinx installer work fine. 
Not that it is the correct fix ;)
