	Remember, using of native dlls is a workaround - not a solution! If you think 
that native is better than builtin - you're wrong.
	If program.exe doesn't workand you want to try to find a workaround for the 
bug you found, run:

WINEDEBUG=+loaddll wine program.exe

	You will see what DLLs are used by program.exe. Try to override DLL that 
might be responsible for the bug. For example, comctl32.dll contains common 
GUI components used by Windows applications so if you override it you 
may "solve" some related problems.
	If you really want to know how to find such workarounds, you need to know at 
least the basics about Windows API. At least you need to know what is the 
purpose of each DLL. For example, see  
http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/dlllibrary/comctl32/ for 
short description for comctl32.dll. See "Top System DLLs Listed in the 
WinTasks DLL Library" at the bottom of page: you will find links to other 
popular DLLs and their short description. If you want more information, use 
Google, read documentation, etc... Maybe at some day you write a patch to fix 
something in WINE and make our life better.
	But never forget to report bugs to the WINE' bugzilla! If you found 
workaround then mention it in your bug report along with other information.
	Thanks for using WINE.
