ITE: Game detection is broken

The game detection for ITE is quite broken at the moment. We simply cannot tell the difference between the various versions. For instance, if I copy the files from my Linux CD version (since the game detector cannot detect the game directly from CD) and try to add it, I'm presented with the following choices:
Inherit the Earth (Linux CD Version) Inherit the Earth (Win32 CD Version) Inherit the Earth (DOS/Win32 CD Version)
While I can select that this is the Linux version, this information is not saved in the config file except as a game description. At run-time, it will simply pick one. And it probably picks the wrong one, since the game crashes with a "RAWInputStream() wrong musicInfo!" message.
My Windows version is is identified as either:
Inherit the Earth (Win32 CD Version) Inherit the Earth (DOS/Win32 CD Version)
I have a nagging feeling that it's mis-identified at run-time, because there are glitches with the WyrmKeep logo animation. I'll see if I can look into that later. It's outside the scope of this bug report.
My Multi-OS version is correctly identified, but plain refuses to run. I'm returned to the launcher with no error message. I'll see if I can look into that later, as well. It, too, is outside the scope of this bug report.
