[Wine]crash in cvs from 10/16

I updated from cvs just this morning to make sure I had the same initial 
conditions as yours.  I ran Mike Hearn's script and IE6 installed.  
However, winedbg started twice during the script.  I have not yet had a 
chance to compare the log to yours, but I just type "quit" and allow the 
installation to continue.

I noticed in your log file that one of the last messages was something 
to the effect "can't find iexplore.exe."  Sometimes, I have had to 
<mkdir .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Internet\ Explorer/> for the script 
to work.

Additionally, the script creates files and directories in the /tmp 
directory.  You may wish to delete these and start from scratch.  I have 
the setup files backed up so that I just copy them to my 
.wine/drive_c/windows/Windows\ Update\ Setup\ Files/ directory.  Then I 
run the script.

You might try looking in the "Windows Update Setup Files" directory to 
see if all the CABS and necessary files are there.  If so, clean up the 
stuff in the /tmp directory and run the script again.  you may end up 
downloading ie6setup.exe again.

The post I sent to the developers mailing list finally made it.  If your 
interested, I would ask that you check it out.  It describes all the 
situations I have had with IE6 since the September snapshot.  Or I could 
forward it to you.  It's 32k with the zipped log files.

Good luck.
