Here is the situation. There are six different soccer games, developed by Konami, all straight ports from Playstation 2. These are the following:

Pro Evolution Soccer 4 (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=2750) (PES4)
Winning Eleven 8 (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=5152) (american version of PES4)
Pro Evolution Soccer 5 (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=3056) (PES5)
Winning Eleven 9 (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=11439) (american version of PES5)
Pro Evolution Soccer 6 (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=4103) (PES6)
Winning Eleven 2007 (american version of PES6)

At least five out of these six games share 3 different bugs:

A- Their installation hangs at the end (but it completes successfuly anyways).
B- They crash at startup if resolution is set higher than 640x480.
C- They crash at startup if audio is enabled in Wine settings.

Winning Eleven 2007 doesn't have an entry in AppDB, but since it's just the american counterpart of PES6, I assume it suffers from the same issues. Bug "A" isn't even reported at Wine Bugzilla, I will report it soon. Bugs "B" and "C" are loosely reported as generic startup crash bugs (see 9001 (http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9001) and 9121 (http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9121)). They have mixed reports from both the audio and resolution crashes. They even have reports of an old mid-game crash bug that is now fixed.

So what should I do about those two bugs? I think of 3 possible solutions:

1- Somehow dump bugs 9001 and 9121 (since they are rather old and lead to confusion) and replace them with two new bugs called "Game crashes when audio is enabled" and "Game crashes when resolution is set higher than 640x480".

2- Mark one bug as duplicate of the other, and create a new one, assigning to each one the audio and resolution issues, respectively.

3- Somehow manage to rename those bugs to "Game crashes when audio is enabled" and "Game crashes when resolution is set higher than 640x480" indistinctly.
