It only includes changes through the end of the day (midnight) of the 24th.

First go to http://www.winehq.org/hypermail/wine-cvs/2004/05/index.html

There were only a few files committed on the 25th, so I would do them 
one at a time. Pick a time between the commit times of the first two:

cvs update -PAd -D "2004-05-25 00:09:00CDT"

It is useful to watch as the files are patched, and make sure that only 
the files expected to be updated are patched. In this case, the only 
file that should have been patched is dlls/kernel/kernel_main.c Compile 
and try. If that works, try the next commit.
