You are looking in the wrong place.
Wine release 20011004

Usage: wine [options] [--] program_name [arguments]
The -- has to be used if you specify arguments (of the program)

   --winver         Version to imitate (win95,nt40,win31,nt2k,win98,nt351,win30,win20)

At some time in the history of Wine, the default --winver was win31.
It is now win95, I think.

MajorVersion: 4
MinorVersion: 0
BuildNumber: 0x40003b6
Platform: Win32 on Windows 95 or Windows 98
CSDVersion: 'Win95'

That is odd.  That is where it normally lives in a from source default
installation, and not what is in winedefault.reg, so you or a program
you ran changed it.  /usr/local/bin/winedbg is normally a symbolic link
to the wine executable, and /usr/local/bin/ is the debugger
itself.  If you or your setup uses winelauncher, the wine executable
might not be where you think it is.  winelauncher is sometimes installed
with the name wine, and the wine executable is somewhere else
(/opt/wine/bin/wine.bin, sometimes).  Try a ps xaf sometime when wine is
running and see what really rune.
