	Please report a bug at http://bugs.winehq.org .
	In your bug report please provide following information along with the OS and 
WINE you are using:

	1) What happens if you try to run the program in X server with 16 bit depth?
	2) What happens if you try to run the program in virtual desktop? If you 
don't know how, this is simple, just execute:

wine explorer /desktop=800x600,desktop_name_you_like program.exe

	Filling a bug report is very important if you want to get your bug fixed 
because most developers don't read wine-users mailing list.
	Thank you for using WINE.
