Yes, that's the problem.  I'm running 12.04 and my 32-bit libc.so.6 points to 
libc-2.15.so, which is 12.04's highest version.

My wine version shows 1.6.2 although Synaptic and Muon show 1.4 as installed.

Quicken ran fine on wine until just a few weeks ago.  It's a real pain having 
to boot Windows just to do my bookkeeping.

Bottom line:  How do I get either wine 1.4 or libc-2.17.so on my 12.04 system?
