1. In a small bowl soak the dried porcini mushrooms in the white wine for 15 minutes.
2. In a medium sauté pan heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, add the onions and sauté for approximately 5 minutes, or until soft. Add the flour, stirring to coat the onions, and cook for 2 minutes.
3. Add the chopped garlic and sauté another 30 seconds. Add the assorted mushrooms and Italian seasoning and cook for 10 minutes.
4. Add the stock and wine with soaked mushrooms, and continue to cook another 5 minutes, until most of the liquid has evaporated.
5. Rub the cut garlic clove on one side of each baguette slice. Toast the slices under the broiler for 5 minutes, or until slightly crisp and just browned. Place on individual plates, and drizzle with olive oil.
6. Pour the mushroom mixture on top of the bread slices, and serve.
