Out of curiosity, why did you set this to native?  Was this for the
date/time picker issue mentioned previously?

Hmmm....With wine-20050310 I have the problem with the invisible
menubar.  Could this be a problem with managed vs. unmanaged or
something?  If so, how are you running it?

Well, part of the problem is that in order to access any data and use
the program with any purpose, you need an account with the provider of
the program, the Oklahoma Climate Survey.  Personally, I've had no
problems running and testing the program, and overall it works great.
I'm just trying to iron out a few issues with the program so that it
might work flawlessly, as well as iron out some Wine bugs.
