	I'm not sure about your app but Maya (with FlexLM) license works fine with 
WINE. Please note that I didn't test it for a while so I'm not sure about 
compatibility with current WINE but not so long ago it worked perfectly. So 
it is possible that this problem is specific for your app.
	Your really should file a bug report here: http://bugs.winehq.org . By doing 
so you will help WINE developers fix your bug. Thanks.
