> In 2.6.17 and earlier, they work even with noexec=on.

just to clarify:
noexec controls the behaviour only for 64bit processes, so it doesn't (directly)
affect wine. And it is (and was) afaik always enabled per default when the cpu
supports NX.

noexec32 controls the behaviour for 32bit processes and it was off per default
until 2.6.16(?). It can only be activated if noexec is on. Setting noexec=off
implies noexec32=off.

There was a thread some time ago on wine-devel why noexec32=on breaks certain
windows applications: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.emulators.wine.devel/41332
