"real NOVICE" and using LD_PRELOAD or "hotpatching" does not fit together for me...?

- wine uses it own elfloader, which might cause issues.

- during loading/linking it might also interact already.

what should the LD_PRELOAD thing achieve? Can perhaps a wine internal debug mechanism
be used already?
