Another month, another winetricks-alpha.

winetricks-alpha version 20110218 adds the following new verbs:
  atmosphir deusex2_demo dsoundhw=emulation eve fable_tlc
  fifa11_demo hegemony_demo hon imvu kotor1
  kotor2 lhp_demo mb_warband_demo office2003pro office2007pro
  sketchup starcraft2_demo videomemorysize wowtrial
and four new options:
  --gui            Force gui progress indications even when run from commandline
  --isolate-games  Puts games in their own sandboxed wineprefix.  Experimental.
  --noclean        Leave temp files when verbs done.  Useful when debugging.
  --showbroken     Gui normally hides apps known not to work with
current wine.  This shows them anyway.
and one new feature:
  Commands are now logged to $WINEPREFIX/winetricks.log so user has a
record of what he did to the bottle
and updates a number of download URLs, most notably mxsml3.

The script can be downloaded from at the obvious url:
(The old download url at still works, too.)

3dmark06: mark as broken because of winehq bug 9210
3dmark2001: observed a hang, so added a few delays, that usually helps
Obey W_CACHE even on mac.  Pick good WINETRICKS_POST even if
WINETRICKS_DIR is not set.
Replaced tabs with spaces.  There should be no tabs in this file.
alldlls: fixed verb, it wasn't getting invoked properly
aoe_trial: didn't have any delays after WinWait, and hung on a recent
run.  Add missing delays.
atmosphir: fix media type, bug found by Scott Jackson
bfbc2: add little delay at point of an observed hang

bugfix: Abort if install check fails after install
bugfix: Don't crash immediately if WINEPREFIX is set but does not exist

bugfix: Don't unset DISPLAY in early_wine, it breaks later runs of autohotkey.

bugfix: Use %windir%\Temp rather than %windir%\_temp, since on Windows
7, there were mysterious permission problems installing vc2005express
with the nonstandard _temp directory.
bugfix: User complained that w_die wasn't fatal.  Sure enough, need to
check subshell exit status explicitly.
bugfix: When unmounting, also eject.  This should help multidisc titles.
bugfix: add parameter checking on w_override_dlls to catch a common thinko
bugfix: w_read_key: also strip spaces from key

firefox4: update url
flash: updated, fixes winezeug 228.
fontfix: can't claim it has an installed file unless it always
installs it.  Also, fixed a typo that caused anything without an
installed_file1 fail if used from inside a verb that does.

gothic4_demo: ported from wisotool, marked as broken
kotor2: shorten name to make it fit in dialog
mono28: fix list-installed and list-cached

shockwave: updated sha1sum

other download functions.
w_override_app_dlls: accept b as synonym for builtin, etc.

w_workaround_wine_bug: 2nd argument implemented, with nicer range
syntax, e.g. 1.3.8, means 'works in wine-1.3.8 and later'

bit longer for server detection.
