Confirming that the bug has something to do with the new ad.

The ad is a HTML page located under
http://curseclient.curse.com/clientads-mpu.html and will be shown by the Curse
Client in the addon list's bottom-right edge(CurseClient is an application that
manages your game's addons). To achieve this, CurseClient embeds the Internet
Explorer. The addon list is not shown until you register a game to manage.

A workaround is to install Internet Explorer 6 using winetricks. CurseClient
will start up correctly and the ad will be shown as it should. 
Another workaround is to just use native shdocvw and shlwapi(as a dependency)
from the Internet Explorer package. The ad will not be shown, theres just a
blank square where it should be, but CurseClient works correctly. So I guess
the bug lies somewhere in Wine's shdocvw ;).

A user in the official CurseClient forums reported that it works without
tweaking if you have a paid premium account, which will disable the ad.
