Dear Wine-friends,

I was wondering if any of you would have a clue around why WinBUGS (http://www.mrc-bsu.cam.ac.uk/bugs/), a nifty Markov chain Monte Carlo sampler widely used in Bayesian statistical modelling, no longer works when run through any version of WINE newer than 1.1.12.

I have encountered this issue of my machines at home (which runs on Zenwalk 6.0) and work (Mandriva 2008.1) a while ago, but only reported it now as I kept on hoping for the issue to be resolved.  Curiously enough OpenBUGS (http://www.math.helsinki.fi/openbugs/), an open-source version of WinBUGS, runs without a hitch under any version of WINE.

Should I report this as a (win)bug?  With many thanks in advance.
