The main improvement was the change from italics to normal font. They are 
still rather small but at least legible. The fonts for the window dressings 
that surounds an application (includs toolbar) seem to be tied in to the 
design of the application and cannot be changed to other fonts by the user. 
If it cannot find the font that it needs, then an italics default font is 
used. I think this is a flaw in wine. The default should be a normal font 
instead. Well, wine has not reache the version 1.0 level yet, so there is 
still hope.
