Ok, I got over my laziness and downloaded the X server source, built it and
installed it.

I couldn't use the Wine prebuilt binary package because OLE32something.DLL
complained of an undefined symbol (XCreateImage if I recall correctly) in

So I recompiled the CVS version of wine; and I'm happy to say that now,

check it and it works too (up to now, I've just created a character and made
a few steps outside the inn at the beginning of the game - Icewind Dale had

However, to make Icewind Dale work, a couple of things:

* I had to copy DPLAYX.DLL from Windows and tell wine to use it natively
instead of builtin;

* there is an unhandled exception when 3D acceleration are set 'on';

* there is an unhandled exception when there 'SoftMirrorBlt=0' in
incewind.ini; it should be 'SoftMirrorBlt=0'. The same problem happens with
Baldur's Gate where, when 'SoftMirrorBlt=0' is kept in the ini file, wine
