I've cvsup'd several times since first applying the patch, and haven't noticed 
any issues ...

Also, any chance of getting the thr_kill2() patch Tijl did in?  I've been 
running both on my desktop, and haven't noticed any issues resulting from 
either (other then improvements to wine, of course) ...

Getting both those patches in place should allow us to focus on wine itself 
without having to worry about the OS side of things ...
