I also experienced the problem.
In my experience the best versions to run warcraft 3 are wine-0.9.6 / wine-0.9.7
using the -opengl option on the command line.
with wine-0.9.9 wine tries to handle the bink cutscenes, which results in
unavoidable freezes and X protocol errors in single player.
There are already bug reports about these problems.
with wine-0.9.10 the splash does not work, as explained before by the other
user. The same issue remains in wine-0.9.11 and current CVS.
Using wine is quite exhausting as an user, as it tends to break a lot of
programs every new version, resulting in lots of time-consuming regression work.
If I can give a humble advice, you should have a pool of applications to test
manually before committing relevant changes to wine.
For example, I found a serious regression that dates back to 2005 (pre wine 0.9)
that breaks the game "Icewind Dale 2", and it's still not fixed yet.
This is to mean that regressions should be best avoided by prevention, if you
