OK - So I am in a 'let's see what actually works under wine-20041019'
mood this week. I've currently had VERY little luck getting anything
to run, but I've been trying lots of things people don't use a lot:

Reaktor Session
Roller Coaster Tycoon
GigaStudio 96
Caesar 3

Of those only Caesar 3 works correctly.

I have a copy of Quicken 2001 here in my binder. I'll try installing
it and seeing what happens. I normally run Q2004 Premier Edition under
Crossover Office, but I used to run Q2001. If I have the problem we
learn something, and if I don't have the problem we can try to figure
out what's different about our systems..

Give me a few hours...
