Are you hinting at differences between Unix and Linux, as Wine is  
likely most tested on Linux?  I tested on Ubuntu 7.10, running inside  
VMWare Fusion on my Mac, and I get the same failure.  So this may be  
an issue on Linux too.   I realize that this could be an artifact of  
running Ubuntu in a virtual machine running on OS X, so possibly the  
root cause is some incompatibility with OS X.

Or are you saying that if Wine doesn't work properly on Unix and  
Linux, it is up to Unix and Linux developers to fix their operating  

Should I file another bug for the case where I get a failure when  
using a native gdiplus.dll?
