I agree on second reading.

Here is what is happening:

I start wine notepad from within a newly built 1.3.2 in its own directory on my Mac.  I have set the 'appropriate' paths to point to this directory.

The 'Updating configuration in<directory>' dialog pops up.  Then iexpore (gecko) starts with a line 'res://...#http://RegServer' in the address block.  This crashes (I have logs if you want them) and the "Program has encountered a serious problem" dialog comes up.  I click on the Ok button and then notepad starts.

I was just wondering why Wine was trying to register a typelib file that does not exist in my C:\Windows\system32 directory and if I have to 'flush' my Wine directory and let Wine create a new one.

Sorry for the confusion.  Sometimes I confuse myself with these trashy messages....
