OK, I will do it then!
But I will have to learn a bit on how to use subversion trhough our 
autenticated squid proxy. 
It will take some hours (or days 8-/).
As soon as I get a local snapshot working I will post a message again 
(also after reporting the bug)

Sorry! Just a typo .... I meant WINEDEBUG ....

I will be working on setting up an environment to apply the patches. 
Just wait some time in order to me to work on some issues I would have ...
