The idea is that if an application handles exceptions then it will
handle exceptions and not wine. The debugger is only called in case of
_un_handled exceptions.

Are we still talking about asserts? Trying to do that within wine
instead of the application sounds strange. Why would you do that?

No, I thought it may prevent your app to do the assert(0) in the first

Use graphics vs text mode. Text mode is expected to have more bugs
because fewer people test it.
