To get any useful information out of the debugger, you'd have to do a lot
more work (and it might not work with your RPM installation, so maybe
you'd have to build wine from source).

If you can give instructions on how to reproduce the bug, that's the most
useful thing.  If possible, give instructions on where to get the software
(best if it's freely distributed) and how to make the problem come up.
