Ok, I will take you up on this.

I am new to wine but am battling to get this groovy programme 'Wap Proof'

to run.

I am using version 1.2 (not 2.0) of Wap Proof. The install is fine and the emulator 
can load WML files which are on the hard drive.

However whenever it accesses the internet to fetch a WML page over HTTP it 
crashes reliably in wininet.dll.

This is a Unicode application, so it uses all the *W functions in this DLL.

I am running gentoo, so I have built my own wine will additional TRACE statements to 
confirm the problem.

I am a professional engineer so I am willing to assist.

How then should I best go about getting this resolved?
