wine cannot handle fc-cache (64bit) but fc-cache32 is okay

Is it as-it-should-be, that wine only handles 32bit fc-cache?

Is it known, that executing the 64bit version /usr/sbin/fc-cache will make the font-cache fail for wine, hence making wine *very* slow to startup? Rebuilding the cache with fc-cache32 makes wine start quickly again. It seems that the actual font cache format for fc-cache has changed between architectures.
