I've tried 0.9.34 on a second suse 9.3 system ( identical system, same 
distro level ) and notepad works correctly. There is one difference 
between the two systems, the one that doesn't work has the 
c:\windows\fonts\ directory popoulated with windows truetype fonts and 
the non working fonts, such as couri.fon ( not sure if I spelled that 
correctly, but you get the idea ). However the system where notepad 
works ... it's c:\windows\fonts\ directory has no font files in it what 
so ever. Could wine be using these .fon fonts in c:\windows\fonts\ which 
it then can't display correctly ?.

I'll remove the .fon files from c:\windows\fonts\ on the non working 
system on Monday and see if that fixes notepad. Maybe something in wine 
changed that affected it's ability to display .fon fonts ..
