I'm not one of the wine developers but I use WoW on Ubuntu so I'll try to help.

Which repository did you download wine from?

If it was the base Ubuntu one, try this place (in your /etc/apt/source.list)

deb http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main
deb-src http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt edgy main

If you are running an unaltered version of wine (ie no patches) then on your
NVIDIA box you should get a horrible flicker (especially indoors). I don't know
about ATI as I don't have an ATI card.

Have you tried using the latest version of wine from GIT?
If not try that as it has fixed a couple of problems with wine since 0.9.24 came

Do you run in opengl or d3d mode? OpenGL seems to work better but suffers from
the flicker problem (though there is an easy fix for that listed on the WoW
AppDB page).

Finally, yes it is annoying when a program doesn't work properly but the wine
developers have a lot of bugs and other stuff to do so can't always dedicate
100% of their time to one problem. WoW has got a fair sized user base and the
WoW AppDB pages contain a lot of information about getting things working under
