Not yet. Windows9x mode should work again as well as threading and TLS, 
but there are still some open issues, mainly with exception handling 
and file access. Exception handling was completely broken and is now 
mostly working, but sometimes gets stuck in a loop generating 
exceptions and eventually overflowing the stack.

I'll submit patches once Wine passes the most important unit tests, 
unless someone already wants to have a look at them of course...
