Hmmm... Well, the program appears to delete a file, and then tries to 
open it (OPEN_EXISTING) and fails. That would be expected. This may not 
be what generated the error message, though. The way to determine that 
for sure would be to include the relay trace, which should have 
somewhere in it the message "Severe - Unable to create a directory 
under". I don't really see anything in this trace that points to the

No, the exception is separate from MIDIMAP. You might be able to get a 
clue to where it crashed by typing "bt" at the wine-dbg prompt, which 
generates a backtrace. That would be useful to know, if it produces 
meaningful output (sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't). That would 
be very useful to post here.

So, when you enable file tracing, the program crashes, but otherwise it 
does not crash?
