Any rogue "characters" in the filename that aren't visible? Worth trying to run after renaming? (+ Info on exit code 127, FWIW.)

comment How to roll-back or downgrade kernel on 14.04 (re: Wine stopped working)?
Indeed -- I got the same update automatically this morning, and all is well. For me, needing to use Wine for work-related apps yesterday, using the grub menu to boot to an older kernel was what I needed to know. So no, not quite "roll back", but I wasn't sure what language to use at the time. Thanks for the input!

comment System displaying “E” as “H” (?) from different font (?)
In fact, it seems to have been some kind of system glitch - it has happened to me once or twice more (very infrequently) and a simple reboot fixes it each time. Thanks for the other suggestions which might be useful in future.

comment How to roll-back or downgrade kernel on 14.04 (re: Wine stopped working)?
In fact, the advice to use the grub menu is a huge help right away. I'm on a single-install (dedicated Ubuntu machine), and have never seen such a thing - enabled via these instructions. Chose the previous kernel version, and Wine apps working tickety-boo. :)
