I've been side-tracked a bit.
On top of everything else I just signed an agreement of sale and will be moving in 2 weeks. ...

Ok. I have the wine-crossover port and Xquartz installed...  It crashes just as the normal CrossOver does.
So I assume that the normal "port install" installs an unpatched version.

So, how do I apply the patch? 

As best I can tell, there is no "source" tree left around after the install, only the tar file.
