OK, so I don't know what's going on.  (even with tinyproxy/firehol off the
following occurs).

Unless wine is run by root, when WoW is first loaded and trying to login,
WoW creates a Cache folder and a bunch of folders under cache for login
purposes.  The Cache folder exists in: <wine profile
dir>/drive_c/users/Public/Applicatoin data/Blizzard
Entertainment/Battle.net.  Now it can create up to Cache and Download/TMP
under Cache, but all the extra folders don't get created unless being run as
root.  And if they aren't created, you can't log in.

Also, running Repair.exe says can't fix the folder permssions.  However, I
have read/write access to all folders.

same with where WoW is installed.

Also, the fresh installer can't connect:
 fixme:font:CreateScalableFontResourceW (0,L"C:\\users\\Public\\Application
Data\\Blizzard Entertainment\\FrizQuadrata.ttf",(null)): stub

no idea if that has anything to do with it.

I do have the wldap32 native fix.
