As I understand it, the problem with newer builds is with some core
functionality rewrites (such as Windowing code).  This is work that has
needed to be done for some time, and should result  in a far better Wine
(once it is stabilized) than we had before.  

The unfortunate thing is that I make the *most* usage of Wine at work,
running Lotus Notes, and that is a critical app needed full-time.  So I
cannot readily test the newer builds the way I should be.
