Unfortuantley no. I'm not strictly sure whether Wine is segfaulting,
jack_fst is segfaulting, or the VST is segfaulting:

flash mark $ wine --version
Wine 20041019
flash mark $ jack_fst vst_dir/Crystal/Crystal.dll 
Segmentation fault
flash mark $ 

I can run WINEDEBUG=+something, but it generates so much stuff that
it's hard to be sure what I'm catching. I'm just starting to mess
around with this. Each VST seems aq little different, so I'm trying to
see what is common.

This makes lots of sense to me, especially since I'm not a programmer.
I spent some time on the WineHQ site and in Google but didn't find
exactly what the process was for adding TRACE statements. Can you
provide an example I could work from?
