Windows contributor? An interesting typo :-)

To the original poster: Before window management rewrite PageMaker 6.52
had worked quite well under Wine. I was able to place images, metafiles
and do some text related stuff. But currently PM along with many other
applications suffers from infinite painting recursions and lots of
graphics glitches.

I would suggest use Wine 20010418 until all the current regressions
will be fixed. One more suggestion: use native ole32.dll if available.
