Description William Lovaton 2009-02-02 16:24:46 EST
Description of problem:
Office 2007 works great with wine but when I try to open OutLook, the splash screen is always on top of every window and never goes away making it difficult to get anything done.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always, just opening OutLook 2007.

Actual results:
The splash screen stays on top all the time.

Expected results:
The splash screen should go away after a while.

Additional info:
This bug has been reported in wine bugzilla here:

There is already a suggested patch there taken from CrossOver to fix this problem but it looks a little weird to me.  What do you think about it? is there a possibility to include this patch in the Fedora RPM while the bug is fixed upstream?
Comment 1 Jon Dufresne 2009-03-24 11:34:08 EDT
Thank you for the bug report. This is a bug with upstream. At the moment, the Fedora developers are busy fixing other issues and may not have time to work on this one.
