http://www.winehq.com/site/documentation has info that might help you.

The most common way to proceed is to figure out where the crash
by turning on more verbose logging with --debugmsg options; see

Also, there's a way to use Visual Studio's debugger with Wine remotely,
but I can't see where that's documented.  (Hey, can anyone who knows
how to do this point us to the doc?)
