The patch mentioned particularly causes problems on systems like
Fedora with randomized prelinking and exec-shield.

On FC5 it took me some time to get the patched version to run and used:
setarch i386 -L wine WoW.exe -opengl

This apparently enables support for a legacy address layout. Does
anyone know how this would allow it to run?

Just curious,
