Lots of stars! players around :)

There's a thread "Font problems" in which G.Patel kindly answered a
lot of my questions about this font problem. In short the answer is
that's it's not a trivial problem and the easiest "fix" is to delete
the unreadable font from your machine....
I've not yet had the time to try, but I was planning to create an
alternate xfs config pointing to a directory with VERY few fonts, and
running wine/stars! from that setup.
I've given up for the moment because opening up the battle VCR kills
the game instantly :((( It wasn't happening some time ago....
I think I'll spend the evening trying to do something, anyway, since
after I upgraded my mb/cpu/ram win95 is *extremely* dead (doesn't boot
anymore, and install refuses to install) and I have a turn deadline
this evening (and I'm under attack... ;).
