What version of Wine are you using? It installs fine for me on CVS
from yesterday. I have grown into a habit of doing:

 $ rm -rf ~/.wine && wine <program.exe>

because the rate of change in Wine is so high that you can expect
the registry (and the rest of .wine) to be out of sync with Wine's
code within a couple of days.

I recall that there were some changes related to these environment
variables recently. My guess is that Dan's .wine is from before those
