Sorry, I have been a bit busy lately, and I'm not too sure about this,
but you left out the bit about native winsock/wsock32 from your
complaint to wine-devel.  I wouldn't use native anything wine has a
builtin of, unless the app refuses to run with the wine builtin.  AFAIK
Wine's winsock and wsock32 are fairly functional - but all wine sockets
are implemented using linux sockets.  IOW, your linux box has to be
connected to the windows box as itself, not expecting to use some
windows functionality to connect.  I sort of doubt that native winsock
and wsock32 will work.  builtin odbc32 might be worth a try.  If your
app uses msvcrt, native msvcrt might very well help.  My app needs that
and riched32 and mfc42.
