On a similar note, I recently installed Wine to play "Deus Ex", an old
favorite of mine. It was great fun re-living my past gaming
experience, but soon the nostalgia wore off and my patience dwindled.
Back to work...

I was using the Epiphany browser to test some JavaScript in a web page
that I generated, when I accidentally pressed Control-U: the "view
source" command. To my horror, *Notepad* (from the Wine package)
appeared on my screen! Of all the text editors available on my
system, Epiphany chose Notepad as my default text editor.
