aha - I used to let winesetup 'edit' the config, then commit; I supposed it
would straighten things up to what installed wine requires. This doesn't seem
the case, so tryed 'overwrite' to everything and got a clean config - well
at least now I get just:

wine --version
Wine 20040716
Wine exited with a successful status

and a couple of custom winapps seem to run fine again.
But 'look&feel' shows only 3 choices now: W3.1, W95, W98 - why?

I run into troubles with an app that complains that the ODBC installer 
(ODBCCP32.DLL) isn't there ... but this might be the topic of a next posting,
once I managed to check things better (this app never worked though, due
to lack of SQLsomething).

Also, trying to install a labelling prg, I get:

fixme:ole:LoadTypeLibEx Wanted to load L"stdole32.tlb" as typelib, but file was not found

and install exits. Seems it wants DCOM95: tried but got (roughly) 
	'dcom95 is for W95, you have W98'
fine then, tried DCOM98, but got 
	'a newer version of DCOM is installed...'
well, nevermind, that was just for trying, but to install/use DCOM I'd need 
a W9x license, and I don't have it here, as I'm on a fully fake Windoz.
So I won't install/use that prg.
