[pkg-wine-party] Bug#511281: wine: Facility to copy text from dialogue boxes by dragging mouse over

Package: wine
Version: 1.0.1-1
Severity: normal

When a dialogue box displays a message, it is currently not possible to 
select the text for copy into anither application, because dragging the 
mouse over the text does has no effect.

For example, this makes it extremely awkward to copy error messages 
containing long registry keys or multiple messages into an application, 
such as an editor, or into a browser search box for diagnostic purposes.

Suggested fix is that dragging a mouse over text, highlights and copies 
to clipboard.
