That's a "stumper."  I see that the October snapshot just got released.  
I'll be able to do a regression now to find out when this started.  
Unless you need a feature of a recent change to wine, my research tells 
me that IE6 is OK as late as the September snapshot.  The Help Engine, 
which is what I need, doesn't work, though, unless you use a "fake 
windows" created from a version of wine before 20040824 16:00:00 CDT.

I found that as of the cvs update yesterday morning, IE6 generates a 
"first chance" exception when running winedbg.  But if you can't even 
get it installed that won't help.

I don't have any other suggestions and it doesn't look like anyone else 
is going to "bite" here.  You might be able to get some more suggestions 
at Linux Questions.org--it's a pretty good forum.

Good luck.
