Thank you.
(Hmm, but I seem to recall that I've seen screenshots of it running?)

Before I plunge into another Wine experiment (with shell32 as you
suggest), what does this line from the debugger mean?:

ELF     0x40910000-409db000     Deferred        shell32<elf>
 \-PE  0x40930000-409db000     \               shell32

loaded, and that it has then chosen to load a native (PE) version of

Just seems a bit wrong to me, as I can't figure out where it would find that?
