[Wine] PWGL, some improvements

few months ago I started a thread about running PWGL under wine. PWGL is a "
free cross-platform visual language based on Common Lisp, CLOS and OpenGL,
specialized in computer aided composition and sound synthesis. "
However, because I had to use winetricks to install Microsoft Visual C++
2005 (it's needed by PWGL), and the many errors that I got running PWGL, I
stopped investigating further.

However, today I installed wine 1.1.8 under Ubuntu 8.04 and the situation
looks promising: I could install Visual C++ Redistributable without
winetricks, and PWGL runs much better (with almost no error messages).
In fact everything seems to work, the program loads correctly, but the
screen looks still completely broken (black with few random colored lines).
Anyway, the mouse react correctly to the objects (even if I cannot see
them), and, exporting the screen to EPS (from the software), I can see that
PWGL works.

Saving the terminal output to a log.txt file, shows only 2 errors related to
 fixme:reg:GetNativeSystemInfo (0x5422c8) using GetSystemInfo()
... (here lots of pwgl loading infos)
err:wgl:X11DRV_wglShareLists Could not share display lists, context already
created !

I also ran WINEDEBUG=+relay,+seh,+tid wine PWGL-1-0b.exe &> /tmp/output.txt
as suggested in the FAQ, should I attach it to this mailing list?

It would be really nice to have this app working under linux, I made today a
submission for this application in the AppDB, and asked to be a maintainer.

Unfortunately I'm not a programmer so I cannot help providing any code, but
I can test and provide reports.
Thanks for your attention,
Best regards,
