Well if you can get the email address of a WoW developer then maybe we
can track down where the problem in WoW is and work with them to fix
it. I don't think Wine-specific workarounds make any sense: the
address space layout when not requesting a specific address is not
guaranteed. Vista already includes ASLR which is likely to break such
software. It will need to be fixed sooner or later, might as well be
sooner :)
