I think I'd have to know quite a bit more than I do to be able to
*intelligently* use *any* of them.

Yes, I have many (thousands?) of lines like these. I tried comparing
the sections surround the bad text entries to those surround some "good"
text entries. I can't see any meaningful difference. At least
meaningful to me. It might be staring me in the face though and I might
not notice. If I had debugged for more than just fonts (how big would
*that* file be?) there might be other useful info. I just don't know.
I think I'm realizing that it is fairly pointless for me to attempt any
form of debugging with wine. It takes a knowledge level that I simply
don't possess. I believe that I'll just have to deal with a real
Windows partition for awhile longer.

Best of luck with this and thanks for your help.
