Hi, recently I patch my (until then absolutely fine running) Half-Life to version it isn't running properly.

The initial HL menu is shown, but if you click an entry, wine get stuck in 
a deadlock. At this point a sound should be played.

Then I kill it and start it again, attach the proc in gdb (since winedbg is 
hard to love for a developer...no history, no completion etc...) and after 
interrupting the proc you can get this:

Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

This problem just occures after the patch, before hl running very well! If 
I switch of any sound by a console switch, it doesn't occure. of course. To 
prevent such questions (;-): Yes, I also tried wineX, but there hl doesn't 
even start :-( , and:
Yes, it is a bit stupid to upgrade, if everything is fine. I want to play 
counter strike, therefore I think it is a good idea to patch. 
unfortunately. But nobody really has valve's new steam-shit running under 
wine...black future for cs...

A last question: if I build wine --with-npt(bla) I can't get hl even 
spawned. which glibc is definitely needed for threading in wine??? mine is
