    .xsession-errors grows huge running wine

    Whenever I run anything in wine, I get the following error spam continues the entire time the program is running until it fills up the hard drive and the .xsessions-errors becomes absolutely HUGE!

    Can anyone tell me either what to fix or how to stop this from filling my hard disks?

    .xsession-errors:
    ------------------------
    ...
    fixme:iphlpapi:NotifyAddrChange (Handle (nil), overlapped (nil)): stub
    fixme:iphlpapi:NotifyAddrChange (Handle (nil), overlapped (nil)): stub

    Re: .xsession-errors grows huge running wine

    for the record, I managed to come up with a short term fix. I was launching wine from the cinnamon launcher for a given app. (I get the error spam on any wine program I've tried yet)

    So I took the launcher code and added it to a file in my ~/bin directory so I could re-direct all the output to /dev/null for the time being:

    ----------------
    #!/bin/bash

    export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine
    WINEXE=/usr/bin/wine

    # PATH TO windows start menu shortcut here
    STARTMENU=$HOME/.wine/dosdevices/c:/users/Public/Start\ Menu/Programs
    LNKFILE=$STARTMENU/Mozilla\ Firefox.lnk

    $WINEXE C:/windows/command/start.exe /Unix $LNKFILE \
    > /dev/null 2>&1
    ----------------

    Then I just changed the launcher to point to the ~/bin script instead of directly at wine and the start launcher

    I'm not sure but would disabling all winedebug output work in this case?
