Package: wine32-unstable
Version: 1.7.14-2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I get the following warning when running winecfg:

"Wine could not find a Gecko package which is needed for applications embedding
HTML to work correctly. Wine can automatically download and install it for you.
Note: it is recommended to use your distribution's packages instead. See
http://wiki.winehq.org/Gecko for details."

The Gecko wiki page says wine looks for wine_gecko-2.24. However, dpkg -L on
wine32-unstable shows that it installed wine_gecko-2.21 (note the older
version). I confirmed via an strace that winecfg is indeed looking for the 2.24
version and can't find it.
