Curious question: you tested with IE6, how do things work if you
install IE7? Any better?

(I installed IE7 with winetricks to see if I could get the ActiveX
control for our work VPN going. It didn't work, and I didn't expect it
to - it uses ActiveX to completely take over and try to secure a
Windows installation, and I think it just recoiled in horror when it
found itself in Wine on Linux - but I routinely use it now to check
website rendering. It's really horrible. But useful.)
