Wine causing strange messages in Linux dmesg log

Ever since (approx) when the winecfg tool became active, a Windows tool that examined IDE
capabilities has stopped working. Instead, the following messages are being written into the dmesg

hdc: write_intr: wrong transfer direction!
hdd: write_intr: wrong transfer direction!

hdc is a DVD-ROM drive, whereas hdd is a CD-RW drive, and the tool (DiscInfo.exe v1.5.5) tries to
use SPTI. However, the tool identified both as hard disks.

Does anyone have any ideas what's broken, please?
