I heard that SPSS was one of the apps governments like
(so they crunch statistics -- who knew? :-), so I tried
running the free eval.  It wouldn't even install.
The problems were already described in
Looks like an msi problem, but there might be
something more general wrong; all wine apps hang
for about twenty seconds at a certain point during the
install, which is pretty strange.

p.s. one downside of using wine to run firefox as your main
browser is it's a bit more dangerous to do the
  rm -rf ~/.wine
needed to do a really clean install of a test app :-)
so this test was done with a fairly cluttered fake wine directory.
But it seems to match the results in the PR.
