------ Vlad Kaluzhny ----------
I will  try to find out the best way to initialize the Win32
API DLL libraries outside of mono runtime executable.
I like your suggestion to include this into constructor
of Win32 class.  This is exactly the right solution.

------ Vlad Kaluzhny ----------
We do not need  to take any steps in order to avoid the  conflicts the new
Win32 API shared libaries  with an existing Wine installation.
They do not interfere each between  other.
To read  about this, do please  download the latest update of win32api.tgz
and read README file included.
Moreover, the new update will be ready early next week.
