	You may help to fix the bug if you find the patch that broke the game. See 
http://wiki.winehq.org/RegressionTesting . But before trying to start 
regression test please report the bug first (maybe someone else will find 
quick solution or suggest something useful).

	Yes. In fact who have coding skills and enough time can fix problem 
themselves - they don't need to report bug; they just can send a fix instead. 
Of course, most users aren't programmers, have little free time, etc. but 
they can find bugs - and this is why bugzilla exists.

	Rule of thumb: if some lines in terminal output in other bugs looks similar 
this doesn't mean that they are duplicates. If you don't know - simply report 
a bug.
