I don't think that problems with accessing the windows registry have anything
to do with the build ;-)
Check your registry path settings in ~/.wine/config

Well, some people would go as far as saying that people who don't read README

"Trashed" is the wrong term, BTW. You simply need to rename some directories
back to what they used to be. And it's NOT Wine's fault anyway.
