wine.conf? This is pretty old. I don't think wine.conf has been used for 
awhile. I for one can't remember that far back :-) so I would suggest an 
upgrade! I think everyone here would prefer not to try to fix bugs that 
have already been fixed.

Currently, the registry entry for the debugger is in the file 
~.wine/system.reg and looks like this:

[Software\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\AeDebug] 1012756936
"Debugger"="/usr/local/bin/winedbg %ld %ld"

You need to change the path to point to the actual location of the 
debugger. This is required *in addition* to the path needing to be a 
valid path in the wine config file ~.wine/config.

Yes, that works. But editing the files with a plain old text editor 
seems easier.
My real email is akamail.com at dclark (or something like that).
