The lstat64 function is part of the system's standard C library.  You
aren't likely to have the source for it, unless you download the whole
GNU libc source kit and install it.

Odds are, the bug is probably _not_ in lstat64() itself.  Rather, the
bug is in whatever code called it - and this code is probably in one
of the WINE DLLs, or in IE.

Try entering a null pathname when asked for the path to lstat64.c,
then do a stack backtrace, and see if you can figure out what called
this function.  Alternatively, use the WINE debugging command-line
flags to generate a history of the functions being called, and see
what the last few DLL actions or function calls before the crash
turned out to be.

I don't know whether WINE support for Win ME is far enough along for
it to be worth your while trying to figure out this particular
problem, or whether it's a "Yeah, we know that doesn't work yet,
there's months of work to do" sort of situation.
