Package: wine
Version: 1.4.1-2
Followup-For: Bug #474289

Dear Maintainer,

maybe now it's not a real bug (as for me, 'wine iexplore' can succesfully
browse WWW pages, e.g. http://www.winehq.org/),
but Wine still displays an annoying "Wine Warning" every time it starts:

 It appears that libnss-mdns is installed on your system,
 but lib32nss-mdns is not. Please note that Wine will not be
 able to access the Internet unless you either install
 lib32nss-mdns (or ia32-libnss-mdns), or uninstall libnss-mdns.

This message is somewhat confusing:
1) as for now, ia32-libnss-mdns doesn't doesn't exist in Debian archives;
2) lib32nss-mdns is an existing package, but seems to be not a very good
choice, according to the current Debian multiarch approach (it should recommend
libnss-mdns:i386); BTW, it seems that libnss-mdns haven't been converted to
multiarch yet.
