I have the same problem in latest wine (1.2-rc6) and even in VirtualBox using
mouse pointer integration. I think the problem is that the game does not use
directx for capturing mouse input. Instead, it evaluates the movement of the
windows mouse cursor, which is hidden during the game. 
When the windows pointer is exactly positioned in the middle of the screen, the
ingame pointer does not move. When I move the mouse a bit away from this
position, the ingame pointer starts moving slowly. When moving the mouse
further away, the ingame cursor moves faster, according to the distance of the
hidden windows pointer to the screen center.
This strategy works fine, if the application is able to reset the windows
cursor location to the screen center every frame, which wine seems to disallow.

Installing the game in a VirtualBox and disabling mouse pointer integration
(host and guest do not share the same mouse cursor) may be a workaround.
