I have another thread open for a specific program I am having problems with but this has brought about a more generic question.

If a program runs fine using Crossover but not using wine, how do you identify what must be done in order to make the program run fine using just wine?

After trial and error over many things I found that in this case wine did not install all of the fonts that Crossover did. I had to use winetricks and add the all-fonts package.

For my usage so far, this is solved.

All the Codeweavers Crossover source code is available online: Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) Code for CrossOver.

This follows the "RHEL model"... E.g. the Wine source has all the Codeweavers patches pre-applied.
So you would have to diff this source, with the vanilla source for Wine / Wine Staging, to find the actual changes Codeweavers have made...
Some of these changes are "well known", e.g. the fix for the Valve Steam Client...
