Hi Jeff,
wineconf isn't read by many people, so I'm replying on the wine-users
mailing list.

Which version of Pervasive, exactly?

It looks like you asked the same question at
and gave more details there.
In particular, somebody there wrote

And you replied:

Gee, it sounds like it ought to be possible to set up a
toy database that exhibits the problem, using the trial versions at
Can you give us a step-by-step recipe for reproducing the
basic problem using just the trial versions and a toy database?
It might be quite easy (e.g. "Give the following command to create an
empty database....  The tool crashes like this...")
