[Linux-aus] DeskBank and WINE

I'm trying to get DeskBank running under WINE for a customer - 
interestingly enough, kinda-sorta at WestPac's recommendation. Some of 
the things WP had to say about WinME were... unsavoury. Unfortunately, 
their other-than-Windows expert, Simon, is off sick at the moment so 
they ain't got a Linux expert; I'm kind of hoping that _we_ do. (-:

When I run Setup.exe it throws up a splash on a full-screen window that 
I can't "see" past, and there's no obvious way to proceed. A face-full 
of keystrokes won't do it, clicking won't do it, and I can't find 
another WINE window to focus on.

Any ideas? WINE's config mentions trapping other setup screen-snatchers 
and relegating them to an ordinary window but it's not obvious how I 
would apply that to DeskBank.

Cheers; Leon
