People who manage to compile VB apps under Wine with VB6 are likely to 
stumble upon this bug (at least under GNOME/Metacity):

Bug 1598 - delphi 3 - managed - missing minimize/maximize buttons

In addition, if anyone tries to use DBGRID32.OCX, they will surely hit 
this bug:

Bug 3846 - Wine can't run Roderick Colenbrander's DBGRID32.OCX VB test 
apps yet
