Hi Fred!

Thanks for the input. Okay, I've opened the 'synaptic package manager' thingie.  Don't see Wine in there.  I will try downloading on a different machine tomorrow.  Is there a special place I need to copy the files to in order to get synaptic to see it?  Or can I toss it anywhere and browse to it?

Um, yeah, that works - sometimes anyway!

My bad.  I hit two apps in a row where it didn't work (Audacious and ZynAddSubFX) and where it would be really useful and started wondering if this was covered in a config file somewhere.

Mouse resizing works fine for Synaptic, Agave, Gimp, Audacity, Superlooper, Kino, Stopmotion ...

I'll just have to check on an app by app basis.
