Sounds like a bug, most likely in the registry settings. If you want to 
help track it down, and can find nothing similar on winehq's bugzilla:

copy ~/.wine to a safe place
rm -rf ~/.wine
install the app
check if the problem reappears
if so
	copy the ~/.wine/*reg files somewhere safe
	run winecfg and check if problem is fixed again
	if so, run a diff on the old and new *reg files and submit these with
		your bug report
then you can put the old ~/.wine back where it was
