Don't do this.  This causes all sorts of problems as the display will
change, for security, on Leopard whenever X is restarted.

The problem appears to be that you are starting the program outside of
its directory.  You stated that you are using the Winehelper application
to start your programs or are you using terminal and starting them from it?

Depends.  I do use Winehelper and I have several problems, but they are
not related to the use of this program  as the programs also do not run
from terminal.  I'm working on them to see what is wrong, but I suspect
one program still has Win16 code somewhere and that will cause all sorts
of problems, including the inability to run on a 64 bit system with Vista.

Hmm.  I'm still here, and I help.  However, Winehelper is a dead product
(at least as far as I can tell) and Mike is working on a replacement due
to his furstration with it.
