That's almost certainly a missing feature from our ListView
implementation, which is found in comctl32.dll

To fix this really we should implement type-ahead find like Windows has,
I'll see if I can put it on the TODO list if nothing else, but for now you
can use a native comctl32 DLL from Windows 98.

To do that copy comctl32.dll and commctrl.dll to the
~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system directory, then in the config file put this:

"comctl32"="native, builtin"

Obviously replace dictionary.exe with the name of the program you run.

Hope that helps Zoe!
