I did not see an answer to this on the list and it is of interest to me also.

I have the same basic problem running Pegasus Mail with Wine. Though the 
appropriate dll clone exists (or at least the one that I've been told is the 
appropriate one) selecting help gives me nothing more than an empty help window 
except for the associated graphic and some menus and tabs though both the menus 
and the tabs are not the ones shown on a Win98 system. Stderr contains this 

fixme:winhelp:MACRO_JumpContext ("D:\Pegasus\4.12a\WINPM-32.HLP", "main", 
1)semi  -stub

I hope someone out there has a better answer for us.
