Output from half life 2 showing the game grashing after the 3rd red lighting

Wine reacts badly to lighting effects in half life 2 at certain points
throughout the game creating points that you can't progress past.

The first is towards the end of the section called 'sandtraps' when you first
enter the bunker behind the gun placements. There are red flares lying on the
ground. I could progress past this point by turning the dxlevel down to 70 and
all the setting s to low. 

The second is in 'encapments' where the lights go out and the combine forces
storm in and fire red flares for lighting. This can also be avoided by running
dxlevel 70. 

The third is shortly after the second where the girl in the game activates a
view screen and sees the woman doctor in the combine portal room, an alarm goes
off behind her and there is a flashing red light effect. This will still crash
if the dxlevel is 70. I have managed to get past it by triggering the sequence
then running backwards through the level to a safe distance and waiting a few
minutes before it's over.

The forth is straight after when you enter the portal room and just as it is
activated the same flashing red lighting alarm effect that you could see in the
view screen goes off and the game crashes. I have not been able to get past
