Hey, James.

Ironically, i don't use Wine on my Mac. (ironic, because i am helping
someone sort out Mac-specific wine issues / at least the 'launchd
bit').... In the past i've used wine in OSX, but these days i only use
wine in Archlinux and mostly just for using VST plugins + the odd
other windows app.

Could you point user 'Prahas' - the original poster to some useful
info, that you think might be helpful?
