Wine: CreateSystemHeap errors

Hi there,

I'm trying to get IE6 running on wine, but I have seen this error many times 
with other apps:

err:heap:HEAP_CreateSystemHeap system heap base address 0x80000000 not 

This is regardless of the version of wine I use (I tried 0.9.21,1, 0.9.8,1 and 
20050724 (or so) from packages and I had 0.9.16,1 originally on my system 
(from ports))

I am horrible at updating my system, so I'm still on 6.1-PRERELEASE 
(from -STABLE). Do I need to update in order for this to work? Or is this a 
wine-related bug that isn't resolved yet?

I seem to recall the same problems with the versions from the first half of 
2005. I believe it was solved back then. Am I missing something here?

Thanks and regards (and please CC me, I'm not on the list...),
