No it's not.  Or at least I am not clever enough to misconfigure Wine to
produce an error that looks anything like that.  Why don't you try
catching the error in a file, say, like this:

wine d:\\setup.exe 2>&1 |tee ~/logfile

and include ~/logfile in your next letter.  Or use the "script" command
to capture a whole session in a file (exit from the script before you
try to work on the file) and show us that.  Why is root trying to run
Wine, anyway?  Does it have a good /root/.wine/config file?  Does it
think Wine is a system configuration tool?  Ideally, root should be a
lazy sod who doesn't do anything it doesn't have to.  That way it
doesn't make as many disaserous mistakes.
