[Wine] How do I change the resolution Wine reports to the app?

Now that all configuration has been moved into the registry, how do I
tell Wine to report a different DPI to the application than X reports?
The reason I am asking is that I have several Windows apps that do not
correctly render text boxes - evidently the app is being told that the
size a given piece of text will require is different than the size the
text actually will require - as a result the text does not fit into the
space allocated for it.
Also, most Windows apps seem to be using .5 point flyspeck as the
fontsize - I have to use X's ability to change the screen size (ALT-KP+)
to really see the apps - it is as though they were targets to 640x480,
and I am running 1600x1200.
Yes, I realize that many windows programmers are horrid and use actual
pixel sizes rather than point sizes, and fixed-size dialogs, and other
atrocities against mankind, and that there is little Wine can do in such
cases - but what can I do to improve things?
