OK. Distro is Ubuntu 8.04. Wine 0.9.61. I have not installed any "tweeks" to wine except some fonts.  Compiz and pulseaudio are have been killed. 1/2 Gig memory. Nvidia 4 (NV18) GPU. 

I previously had Fedora 8 and wine 0.9.58 on the same PC. 

Space Rangers 2 is the "relaoded" mod that does not have the Starforce which would not work under Wine. 

Previously under Fedora the game worked with one little glitch: If you started a new game, during the phase where the program is building the randomly generated star map, it would hang briefly then crash.  This behavior is still present.  The program just stops. I can't find where it reports any errors or anything like that. 

The second problem only started after I moved to Ubuntu. From time to time, when you are in one phase of the game (receiving a government assignment) the game hangs and crashes. Again, no errors reported, etc. (This is playing a game saved from Windows.)

The other AppDB tester of this game tells me that he didn't experience either of these errors but it has been a while since he ran the game under wine. 

I've tried changing the wineconfig settings (2k vs XP, etc) I also looked at logs generated by the program but they look like the game just stopped. 

I've tried dumping the debug information for the first type error. Some of the output is below. It would be almost impossible to collect any amount of debug information for a crash which may (or may not) occur during some extended play.
