I don't understand  what you are saying here.

basically living with means accepting what you

What do you mean by that ? Wine does not have dll
file. Wine libraries are .so files.

>5. Is this complaining because wine needs the Windows .dll's?

I don't know why this fails, if it's what you mean.
This should not happen if setup correctly, but you seem
to use a tool that is obsolete since a long time.

>6. If there is some dll override setting that should be altered?

override ole32 to builtin ?
Try -debugmsg +loaddll to see what Wine is trying to do
with dlls, as it's sometimes difficult to manage configuration
