Further to my previous post, one Markus Winhard recently wrote on this list:

"No real problem with Wine 0.9. Vfp 9.0 runs out of the box. 
Unfortunately the WAIT WINDOW bug and the ToolTipText bug are not solved 
since 2003. I didn't try to install Vfp9 as I can access the installed 
copy on my windows fat32 partition"

This suggests that most if not all of the problems with using wine 
rather than native .dll's may have been solved, so it may be that it is 
now only necessary to use native versions of ODBC32.dll and ODBCINT.dll 
and the others are all fine. This is assuming, of course, that you ARE 
using remote connections. If you are not I am now at a loss to explain 
the trouble you are having.

Of course, it is entirely possible that you may be using features of 
Foxpro that Markus isn't.
