You didn't say what Wine version. I've never been able to reproduce it myself, but some people have apparently had problems with BTS in some Wine verions. http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18873 So if you're not using the latest development release, upgrade.

FWIW, I used winetricks msxml3 d3dx9, and set it to run in a virtual desktop, and BTS works fine here. My version is the Civ IV Complete, no-DRM dvd.
