A few sites I have searched have mentioned editing some settings in a wine config file, but I haven't been able to find mine. Am I supposed to create it myself? If so, is there a basic one I can copy from somewhere and then modify (I wasn't sure if the ones I found were updated to the latest version of wine)

There are a lot of cut'n'paste oddities between X and Wine, e.g.

(and one more I can't find right now which is something to do with ole32)

or between Wine and Wine, for that matter:


I would document the behaviour thoroughly (and reproducibly - note
problems in above bugs reproducing the problems) and see if it's an
existing bug or something new.
