The set of environmental variables available in a webserver environment
are often very different from those available after a login. Have you
tried displaying them via php: "$test=shell_exec('env');" might work.
Compare that with the set you'd see by running env from a command prompt
and think about the effect the differences might have on wine.
I don't use nginx or php, but the Apache CGI tutorial warns that this is
a frequent source of problems.
