Wine and Java -- some success!

Ahh, with 0.9.12, we are one step away from using Java!! So far, I have 
tried to use a Java-based game that provides it's own JRE in Wine.

It start up fast, and i do mean *fast*, and displays the game's 
splash-banner, and draws a quick black all over the screen (which other 
X clients remove by repainting their windows). It then decides to crash, 
but alas, it did do *something*.

javaw.exe -version gives this:

java version "1.4.0_01"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0_01-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0_01-b03, mixed mode)

the crash gives just this, and nothing more:

swapper.jar: stack smashing attack in function WAVEMAP_widMessage()

The real problem with C++ for kernel modules is: the language just sucks.
