The file system problems are a symptom of some significant changes 
currently being made in this area of the Wine code. I would just wait 
for a couple more weeks until the bugs mostly work themselves out. For 
example, I think the Word problems are now fixed in CVS.

The problem with SetServiceStatus might be worth pursuing though, in the 
way Ivan mentioned.
