I forgot to mention:
Automated test suites are very helpful for validating applications on Wine.
Do you have an automated test suite for your apps?
And if so, do you use a third party tool like WinRunner
or SilkTest to run your tests?  If so, I'd like
to test it under Wine.  See http://kegel.com/wine/testsw.html
for my test tool test results so far.  IMHO getting test tools
like this working should be one of the Wine team's high priorities.
