	This is just another incompatibility. See 
http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-devel/2007-June/057650.html for 
solution - it may help.

	If you get fatal errors from any git command you should stop and fix them 
before continuing.

	This is the error I get sometimes if I forget to run "make distclean; 
git-checkout -f" before executing "git-bisect bad/good". There is legitimate 
reasons for this error so this is not a bug. But sometimes it may be a little 
annoying. Try to run this:

git-clean -d
git-checkout -f

	Does this help? Please note that this will erase all untracked files in WINE 
source directory. This is typical and very useful clean up procedure so it is 
good practice to avoid non-autogenerated untracked files in directory with

	As I have said before if this is too hard/annoying for you then you should 
think about sending the game to me and I'll return it back to you when done 
with regression testing. Of course if you enjoy learning git and 
solving "strange" problems I will do my best to help you remotely.
	Thank you for using WINE.
