Not at all.  Wine has always been distributed as 'alpha' software, and thus
we can expect that a lot of things are continuously getting fixed.  Nobody's
going to try fixing something that's only reported in an old version of the
software.  So you upgrade, test again, and if it's still a problem report
the bug.

To differentiate from Windows, nobody's suggesting you remove and reinstall
Linux, here :-)
