Legend of the Red Dragon on DOSEMU on Linux

In setting up a yet to be announced BBS system I discovered that Legend of the Red Dragon does not work on Ubuntu 10.04 Server installation under DOSEMU. When I ran the config program LordCfg it would fail with the following error:
This version of LordCfg is not meant for your version of Lord

When running the start.bat script or lord.exe it would fail with this error:
# Firing Up LORD.OVR
# Using EMS for faster overlay swapping.
Internal error #38019
Cannot continue.

I did few preliminary searches for these errors on Google and finding only complaints about them. I contacted Gameport which currently distributes the game and they pointed me to an obscure link on the authors website which has a patch for this bug.

The url to the patch for this issue is: http://lord.lordlegacy.com/dosemu/

There is also single forum posting on the authors site about this issue as well but it lacks useful keywords to make it findable. That forum posting is here: http://lord.lordlegacy.com/phorum/read.php?5,196
