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?
