Current wine is not enough. You also need the patch for safedisc, which was 
never applied to wine, because it has to be cleaned up before.
The patch was sent to wine-patches by Laurent Pinchart. But that patch would 
not apply cleanly, because some things have changed in wine since then.

I have made the necessary changes to apply it to current cvs, I could send you 
the patch.
Just you will have to wait some days till I get a definite answer to my 
question on wine-devel. Currenlty I have a cvs conflict and I would like to 
resolve it the correct way, and hope the help of the wine gurus for that.

Do you use cvs? Can the patch be against cvs or should be against a release?

That would not be that hard, but requires quite much work (making a config 
file for wine which uses the root dir of winex).
