Package: wine
Version: 1.6.2-8
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

This does not happens with Ubuntu packages of Wine 1.6.2 on an Ubuntu machine,
but happens with recent versions of the Debian (jessie) packaged version of
wine : I reproduced it on three Debian (jessie) machines.

The installation runs normally. When starting Winword for the first time, it
aks for name and initial, then displays a "configuration" progress bar, then
asks for a reboot.

If one clicks on yes, thge rebooot fails and gives an error message. When
asking for details, one gets the enclosed backtrace.

If one refuses to reboot, the normal Winword appears, but cannot be activated.

In short, the result is an unusable MS Office.

This seems to be a recent regression : an installation worked fine in february,
IIRC. But the Debian package is more recent than that. It might also be Debian-

Tried wine-development : ditto

Tried to create a wine64 prefix and install the 64 bit version : ditto.

I reported this on Wine's Bugzilla
(https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37222). One other user could nor
reproduce (on openSUSE), and another people concluded (how ?) "Likely a
packaging bug".

Hence the present report.
