Package: wine
Version: 1.6.1-13
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream patch

Dear Maintainer,

steam currently doesn't work with wine 1.6.x because of a bug within
wine < 1.7.9 (or maybe 1.7.8?).
A patch has been submitted to wine git to address this problem.
The patch is a simple one-liner:

It would be great if you could include this patch. The Linux steam
doesn't support many games right now, therefore many people
still need to use the windows client with wine.

Kind regards,
