I guess that if it is really a wine issue then it should be
non-permanent. I'm not a developer but in my book it would be wise for
wine not to rely on hardware access methods of the underlying OS in
order to stay as portable (platform independent) as possible. Since wine
is (will ultimately be) effectively a reimplementation of the Windows
family API it should have its own methods of low-level hardware access
and thus automatically be independent of changes in the environment it
is run in.

Thanks so much for that tip, I'll try that out just now.

Cheers, Roman.
