+OS: Debian Woody
+OS Details: Tested on Debian Sid but same for all versions of Linux.
+Summary: Mono not loading Wine shared objects for System.Windows.Forms.
+Mono (as of 15 nov 2002), cannot load Wine shared objects located
+in /usr/lib/wine because none them use the "lib" prefix. Those objects
+are actually standard ld.so libraries because symlinking them with
+correctly named library in /usr/lib is sucessful.
+Ex: ln -s /usr/lib/user32.dll.so /usr/lib/libuser32.dll.so
+User32.dll will then be sucessfully loaded.
+It would be nice if Mono could handle the environment variable WINEDLLPATH
+and load Wine's DLL. This would make things much easier for future user
+of Mono's System.Windows.Forms class library because most package don't
+symlink Wine libs to /usr/lib because Wine can handle the libs
+in /usr/lib/wine correctly.
+I tried to dig in the runtime but couldn't find the right place in the
+code to change this so I just thought filling a bug for that was the best
+thing to do.
