I have tried 4.0 under the indicated setup (debian sarge, wine
20030510 as packaged, using fake Windows). Both install under a
vanilla winesetup, and upgrade of an existing (equivalent) wine
config, do work.

Apart from the abovementionned quirk: 

* save/move/delete of large amounts of binary attachments is sluggish
(just as it was under 3.3).

* Scrolling in the message body pane when there is an image, is weird
to say the least. Looks like the image is not taken into account when
computing the position and size of the scrollbar slider.

* I had a folder name 'junk', it got 'promoted' to being *the* junk
folder. Not a good idea, the upgrade should ask for a rename!
