This is called loading of *builtin* DLL (built into Wine).

And you tried to force Wine to load *native* DLL (native for Windows, original
form).  This is controlled by 'load order', which you can override by
WINEDLLOVERRIDES env-variable or using winecfg (Libraries page).

I doubt this could work, as people in some thread tells it is of different
design. [1]

Next I think you should upgrade to Wine release 0.9.  Its module loader has
changed a quite bit and now it may work for you.  

It would be usefull to know, what version of Max Payne are you testing.  And
maybe you know, whether demo version of same number exhibit similar failure?
