Did winecheck say you have a problem ?
You can try to use ttydrv, or :

from a TEXT console, set DISPLAY like this :
export DISPLAY=localhost:0
and try to run 'wine wcmd' or another text-only program from here.

or run 
wine notepad.exe & > logfile.
you will be able to see what wine reports since you can connect to it
by SSH.
