If this is what you think, then you have to provide a lot more
informations. For every interacting position you mentioned you have to
tell what you changed.

This sounds always nice but in case of Wine going to a previous version
is sometimes a step forward! Wine is work in progress and between
versions many things may get broken or are in testing. To name it you
will have no luck with WinWord with 20050419 as there are redrawing
issues that make it nearly unusable. Other programs show similar
problems. With the version 20050310 you will not have these issues.

Also font problems are very typical to remain in some versions. And
note that solving an issue with one version by configuring something
does not mean that the next version will work with that approach.

By the way: Crossover Office is always more than half a year behind the
actual source tree. Like me with the WineTools they prefer to identify
the most stable release and use this as a basis until there is another
promising release. But they have an advantage over me: They actually
make the source so they know when something is experimental and when it
is supposed to be stable;-)
