Yup, a few lines of each.

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.
