Package: wine
Version: 1.8.1-2
Usertags: serious

wineserver prints this on stderr when it starts:
>Executing wine (wineserver32) 1.8.1 on Debian stretch/sid (i386).
>If something goes wrong, please rerun with "WINEDEBUG=err+all wine"
>for more detailed debugging output.

There isn't any obvious way to disable these messages. They show up even 
when I explicitly set WINEDEBUG=-all. They also show up when my 
WINEDEBUG already wincludes err+all, so the advice about rerunning 
"WINEDEBUG=err+all wine" is incorrect.

I use wine for testing a command-line Windows program. Part of this 
testing is making sure that the program's stderr is empty when no error 
happended. wineserver printing stuff on stderr when it wasn't asked to 
breaks these tests.
