A windows program running under wine can use a null selector in es. This is
noticed in sigreturn() when the selectors are checked to be valid. A null
selector is a valid selector as long as it isn't cs or ss.

	Need to compile wine and try to run sol.exe .


This proposed fix fixes the problem (although this may not be the  right fix).
