I'm actually able to now re-create some problems with TF handling with a
simple non-wine test, and I think I'm zeroing in on the reason for Wine
breaking. And I think it just happened to work by luck before.

Not only do we have problems single-stepping over a system call, we _also_
have problems single-stepping over a "popf" - we'll set TF (to
single-step), and then afterwards we'll _clear_ TF, even if the "popf"
also was supposed to set it.
Working on a patch for this right now, I'll send something out soonish
(and I'll test it on my test-case before sending it, so that it at least
has some chance of working).
