PHP should also not be running as root...

Get the logs!

You can try changing your method for running wine to something like:
/bin/sh -c "<whatever you were running previously> > /tmp/wine_log.txt 2>&1"

Then have a look at the log / post it here....

My wine_with_log script might also help....

move it, set the WINEPREFIX environment variable to point to it...
