This app has been unchanged by the vendor since 2003.  Besides, it is not consistent so far as the app goes, but it does seem to be consistent in wine.

There are several possibilities, one of which is that the commit that caused this did occur earlier than 1.4-rc2 and you just didn't notice. To test that, do git bisect reset, and start over with git bisect bad set at 1.4-rc1 and git bisect good at 1.3.37 (or even earlier). 

The other possibilities are that a change to something else in your system is causing the problem, or that a change in Wine (or something else on your system) has exposed a bug in the game (or something else on your system).
