Perhaps. Is this common enough to add special magic?

As I said, I haven't yet installed any 64-bit enabled wine. I don't
doubt that w32 builds work, I have just have never tested that, and I
think it helps if it can be easily tested without the need for a windows
box or d:o license. Are there any w32 tests in the nightly builds? Using
wine makes that easy, even if that's not a 100% substitute for testing
The only Windoze testing in the nightly builds is for 64 bits. (This is
done on almost real hardware.)
I put on my TODO list after you sent your initial message to setup
nightly testing using wine. Does user-level instructions run natively
on the CPU, or is there qemu-like translation going on?

Could of course be a bug in wine, if these tests succeed on native
You are of course most welcome to debug these failures...
