Wine tends to give messages in the console. If it's a dialog, it's
from your application (I think the wine glass replaces the generic
windows icon you see on windows).

You CAN get two versions of wine working on your computer at once. I
think most developers have at least two versions at hand (stable and
cvs). Just build wine 0.9.12 (don't install), and run
/path/to/builddir/wine. It should have no problem with the libs. And
you'll want to use a new wine prefix for version 0.9.12, whether you
use it along with 20040213 or not.

Life will be simpler with one wine, but if you were going to try to
install a new wine in a different directory, I think you'll be able to
handle two.
