afaik, gcc 4.7 enables by default dwarf4 as its default debug format, 
whilst wine (dbghelp) only supports dwarf2
it generates a lot of conbursome backtraces in winegdb
I've started to add dwarf4 support to wine, but don't hold your breath 
(it's going to be hard and tedious afaict and will require quite a few 
changes to dbghelp for correctness)
(and I have little time right now <g>)

BTW : fedora 17 ships with  gcc 4.7
