If that's the entire error message, it looks like $HOME is empty.  I'd
have expected something along the lines of:

wineserver: mkdir /home/phrostie/.wine.icad/ No such
file or directory

or such.  In your script, put this line:

	echo "HOME is $HOME"

before you set WINEPREFIX, and this line:


after you set WINEPREFIX, and see if they both look right.
