I completely removed ~/.wine, let wine configure the "windows 
directories" ( tools/wineinstall ) and put in the files in the correct 
It then just worked - and keeps working, I just downloaded the cvs of 
today (August 31) and let it build a new wine of that -- no problems 
loading sites (though you better avoid connecting to msn.com, that site 
tries to use something ugly in iexplore which is missing in wine -- and 
iexplore *crashes* )

Those fixme lines are generated here as well, that's not your problem;
I'm using "Linux debian #1 Sat Aug 21 22:57:01 CEST 2004 
i686 GNU/Linux"
