Problem with client manually starting services

I'm developing missing services in Wine and am running into problems
with how Wine starts services. In Windows a service can be started
using "net start <service name>", assuming that the service is
properly added to the registry. In Wine it appears that the user must
manually start the service before calling "net start <service name>",
or the service fails to start.
This is blocking me from developing an svchost wrapped DLL. I guess
its not surprising that the work around of first manually starting a
service fails for a DLL with no main function :-)
Dan Kegel mentioned a recollection of a known bug in Wine along these
lines where, as a work around, clients are manually starting servers.
Anyone know more details on this problem? Any pointers to old emails
or knowledge of this problem would be a big help I start digging
through WINEDEBUG logs.
