I have tested this and seen this problem with several versions of Wine.
Despite the "black screen in menus" bug I had been nicely playing Diablo with
Wine 20050725 and 20050628 at least, version 20050830 had some trouble I can not
remember anymore. These were all Gentoo packaged Wine snapshot releases.

I took the CVS version and tested it twice, dates and reports follow.
The CVS version works just like 20050628, except the CVS version prints some

Wine from the CVS Sep 27, 2005.

Immediately after starting:
pq at daedalus $ bin/wine 'D:/pelit/Diablo-wine/Diablo.exe'
fixme:ddraw:Main_DirectDraw_SetCooperativeLevel (0x7fdffb48)->(0x10022,00000013)
fixme:x11drv:X11DRV_desktop_SetCurrentMode Cannot change screen BPP from 32 to 8
fixme:x11drv:X11DRV_desktop_SetCurrentMode Cannot change screen BPP from 32 to 8
fixme:x11drv:X11DRV_DDHAL_CreatePalette stub

The "Blizzard" movie plays ok. After that, black screen. Music plays ok.
Main menu responds to keyboard, screen stays black.
Starting a game by pressing 'enter' three times. Music indicates game started,
but screen stays black. Printed dozens of times the line:

Clicking the game screen makes it appear and draw correctly. The game is now
completely playable, until you try to go back to the pre-game menus, then screen
becomes black again, but keyboard and sounds respond as they should.

After quitting Diablo, the window disapperas, but Wine stays running, not
releasing the terminal it was run from, until Ctrl+c.

Works exactly like Sep 27 CVS version, except the address in the output is 
0x7fdffb70 instead of 0x7fdffb48.
