I know that. And I plan to do so as soon as I have more free time (in fact I
have few bugs that I want to report but need to do some additional
research/regression testing first) - currently I'm overloaded with work.
However, after a week or two I probably will find some free time to report
all bugs that I found so far (and also retest all my most important programs
with recent Wine and do regression test(s) if necessary).
