[Wine] everquest and an inverted screen

I have been running the original EQ for quite some time now. I haven't
tried the latest wine because I am currently doing a world update on
Gentoo that has had some snags and takes a long time to run. Once my
system is updated, I will update wine and let you know. The git
version of wine was working about a month ago. I never had any luck
with the released versions. They took my rating off of the app db
because I used cvs instead of a released version. You would think that
if EQ worked with wine in cvs, that the next release would also work,
but it doesn't always go that way.
