I wonder whether the .wine folder got created when you were installing your
Windows app as sudo, and perhaps your .wine folder now has the wrong
permissions? Try opening a command prompt and typing...
$ ls -al | grep wine
Output of that command on my system:
drwxr-xr-x 4 chris chris 4096 2008-06-29 20:06 .wine
... and have a look at the owner and group of the directory - it should be
your username repeated twice - if it's "root root" then you have a problem.
You should be able to (substituting "chris" for your username):
$ sudo chown -R chris:chris .wine
Alternatively if you don't mind starting from scratch, simple remove
your .wine folder.
Obviously if you are using a different folder than .wine change above
