It looks like its not translating the color palet correctly.  What color 
depth are you running at?  My guess is that it is 16. If this is correct 
then try increasing it.  It may be that the text is just not showing up 
because of this problem.  

I have CC:ed the Wine development list in order that the real wine gurus 
can have a look at this. How long do you have before  you have to 
subject the little children  to the "Windows Solution".
