I just installed yWriter, and it installs and starts fine, but when I create a new project and then add an object (I tried a chapter, character, location and item), after clicking OK it adds the new object, but then appears to lock up. All menus are greyed out, and the tab pages don't respond.
Moving the window around and maximise/restore still works. I also note the window decorations are incomplete after the OK (but there when the program starts), I only get the max/restore button.
Adding a new scene, project note does work as expected, and after I kill the program, when I re-open the project file, the added data was saved OK.
The same behaviour occurs when editing one of the previously added objects.
I've already tried adding comctl32 and comdlg32ocx DLL mappings, as they are requirements per the yWriter site; and tried switching to the latest Wine (1.7.10) to no avail.
This is on Linux Mint 15 XFCE 64-bit. I also confirmed this on another computer, same distro, fresh PlayOnLInux install - it shows identical behaviour.
Any help in solving this would be most appreciated. I'll attach the debug log, too.
