> What's the best way for an application to detect that it's running under Wine?

Some people have given suggestions, but please note that we discourage
doing this.  It's better to fix Wine than to work around its bugs, and
working around bugs removes incentive to fix them.  So please, log a
bug about the problem you're seeing at, how to
reproduce it, and so on.
