Yes, we tested with Phoebe 1 and unfortunately the glibc changed again
in Phoebe 2. What's even worse is that the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL does not
work at all with that glibc and that it is unlikely to work again in
future releases.

Apparently glibc is undergoing major changes in the area of thread
handling and in how it handles errno & co, and is switching to a model
which is incompatible with Wine, be it CrossOver Plugin, CrossOver
Office, WineX or regular Wine.

There are discussions currently on the Wine development list as to how
to deal with this but no solution has been found yet. So anyone who
depends on any flavor of Wine should not upgrade to RedHat 8 Phoebe (or
the upcoming SuSE 8.2) until a solution is found.
