I did install dosemu in between these posts, and it works perfectly well with the dbu.exe program, and so if DOS emulation is not absolutely necessary, then the Wine crew would just be perhaps re-inventing the wheel.
Wine still aims to support all windows apps, and some apps require
both DOS and Win32 APIs. We need to fix those bugs. Sadly, DOSemu and
DOSBox are both under the GPL, so wine (LGPL) can't use their code.
So please, search for similar bug reports and if you can't find one,
file a bug. No one may fix it soon, since it's not a big deal for most
people, but it should still be fixed.
