Thank you!

Please find my CivIV output (w. no DLL overrides) attached. The output
looks identical, if not similar to my output w. DLL overrides.

Could you please identify whether this is indeed a Wine bug, or simply a
problem with my install? Errors like:

err:menubuilder:WinMain failed to build menu item for C:\Program
Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Saves.lnk

make me think that the latter might be the case...

If it is a bug, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to post
it to http://bugs.winehq.org

Thanks in advance!
