I see. I tried again with:

git bisect start
git bisect good wine-0.9.15
git bisect bad

and... well:

1st compilation successful - bug present
2nd compilation successful - bug present
3th compilation successful - well now even winecfg doesn't want to start –
some kind of “can't create window” error (sorry I didn't write it down). Now
I tried again with git bisect bad and recompilation – but wine was never
able to create window. Few compilations later it failed to compile at all.

My questions are:

1.Is there a way to compile and test wine using above git bisect?
2.If I found regression between 0.9.15 and 0.9.16 – should I report it at
all? This is after all very old wine version...

Thank You
