Alexandre, this is very far out of my area of expertise.  The suggestion of 
max-page-size came from Tijl (CCed).  If I understand what you are suggesting 
 1) Change winegcc to include the max-page-size fix for all dlls on amd64?, or
 2) Change the image base so that it works on both i386 and amd64 (with super 

If (1) then could you please point me in the right direction.  I have no idea 
where to start.  If (2), I though the image base was prescribed by Microsoft 
and couldn't be changed (and if it could then the other layouts also need to 
be taken into account).  Either way I also have no idea where to start.  I 
know enough to know I know very little.
