Well, shoot.  I added msvcp71.dll to winetricks a while ago,
but it turns out Contribute 4 also needs mfc71u.dll,
which wasn't included where I grabbed msvcp71.dll.
Happily, I found a nifty tool which shows which apps
come with which dlls:
and sure enough, at least one of those apps is free.
Guess I should update winetricks.

Contribute 4 actually starts up with that, but it got
tangled up when I moused over several menus,
crashing with some "native code threw exception"
problem in jscript.
