I did some testing this evening and found that one of
the bugs was a result of a Microsoft bug that I have
seen quite a few times but the GUI reacted a little
different so I did not suspect it. This bug is
sometimes the .ncb file of a project gets corrupted
causing Visual Studio to hang with 100% cpu. The
difference in wine is that during the hang I can
resize the window but it does not correctly refresh.
After delting the .ncb file I was able to load my
workspace but had a path problem when I tried to
compile (probably nothing to do with wine again) so I
decided to try a simple test. I tried to create a new
win32 console application with mfc support. After the
final step in the appwizard the porgram hung. In the
terminal I launched msdev from there was the following

err:heap:HEAP_ValidateInUseArena Heap 0x7fcf0000:
in-use arena 0x7e1fc348 next block has PREV_FREE flag
err:seh:setup_exception stack overflow 180 bytes in
thread 0032 eip 7ffc1d36 esp 7fb00f4c stack

I would like install VC clean on windows and use this
clean copy to test to see if that makes any difference
before I start a bug report the only problem is that I
am just about out of space so that will have to wait
until I upgrade my system this weekend.
