Ok it does not help programs where people have not done at least the min foot work for the application.

Min foot work is having at least tested to what 2 versions of wine the fault happens between and that latest version is tested and still fails.  ie like 0.9.60 and 0.9.61 as the two version no more than 1 version number apart.

The test results in the appdb are useful.   Now even better is if a person is prepared to take on a full regression hunt and find what patch causes its failure.  http://wiki.winehq.org/RegressionTesting

With the exact patch a really good bug report can be put in and a rollback patch created to keep application working until developers solve the issue.

Working application comes down to how much user support we have for it too.
