In Win2k, it is picking "MS Sans Serif", but in Wine configured for 
"Windows 2000" it is picking Tahoma. And indeed, using my small test 
app, in Win2k with the Tahoma font, I can no longer type 4 numbers in 
the field, and the margins are both set to '3'.

On the other hand, in both Win2k and WinXP, "MS Shell Dlg" seems to be 
mapping to "MS Sans Serif". So is having Tahoma the default really the 
right thing to do?
