IIRC, Wine doesn't compile yet if x86-64 is the target processor
(Win64), it'll compile as x86 (32 bit) instead. Culprits are some
assembly routines (InterlockedIncrement et al.), plus 32 bit <-> 64 bit
translations (unless we want a "pure" Win64, but I'm sure some apps will
need both at the same time).

So my guess is he's running a 32 bit version.

relay and trace are two different things: relay is a debug channel
dumping info at each (or almost) function call, while trace is a class
of debug statements shown only when asked. relay is in the same league
as dll, file, opengl, while trace is in the same league as fixme, err
and message.

Relay shouldn't segfault, and it's still supported. I guess Adrian (if
nobody else can reproduce) will need to add further traces or go through
it with a debugger.
