You should not run wine as root because it is exposing your entire system to
danger. Root can do *anything*. Therefore, any crash in any program or library
has the potential of wrecking havoc on your system. Sure it may be easier not
having to sudo for tasks every now and then, but running normal programs as root
is one the main reasons that spyware proliferates on windows machines.

If you will run this in a clean .wine directory, as a *user*, not root, and
still get the crash, then try running a regression test to see what patch broke
it between wine 0.9.40 and wine 0.9.41.
