Thanks for your reply.

I read the RELEASE-NOTES and disabled Exec-shield for all binaries. 
Same results as before.  I discovered now that IE6 does work after the
error dialog is closed, regardless of the setting of the Exec-shield
value, so it is more of an aggravation than a show stopper.  I did
submit a ticket to the Codeweavers problem site.
