    Unhappy Windows application window briefly appears and disappears

    An apparently VB-based application which I'd been using for months suddenly stopped functioning properly a few hours ago. The window appears for a split second then disappears. The app keeps running somehow until I Ctrl+C in the terminal. I did not install anything new in the time it stopped running. I tried removing and re-installing wine,even installing an older version 1.5ppa->1.4, no change. Had read some things about libpng needing to be installed; it was already installed and it was reinstalled, no change.

    Any ideas how to resurrect this app?

    Here is the terminal output:
    Code:
    fixme:ole:OleLoadPictureEx (0x9dfda4,798,0,{7bf80980-bf32-101a-8bbb-00aa00300cab},x=0,y=0,f=0,0x32fa50), partially implemented.

    Update: Considering the possibility that the window was minimizing and falling out of view, I tried using a different window manager and it still was not on the window list. It looks like the window is failing to create. Sometime it shows up in my dock for a split second. Task manager shows it still running until I terminate it.
