	This is certainly good idea!

	I agree that there is no need in "just another forum", really... Main point 
of this discussion was that should have a link(s) to a forum(s) of 
some kind (WINE related) so users can find it easily. That's more than 
enough, actually.
	I saw your recent patch for this and I think this is exactly what was needed 
to fix the issue. So I think this topic is resolved (or, to be exact, will be 
resolved when your patch will be committed). Thank you for quick fix!
