Can't make a shadow directory

Thanks Lawson. I am trying to run a program now, but it doesn't start. I 
have got the next output after I did: wine --debugmsg +loaddll logic.exe:

trace:loaddll:MODULE_LoadLibraryExA Loaded module 'C:\Program Files\Logic 
Audio Platinum 5.01\msacm32.dll' : builtin
trace:loaddll:MODULE_LoadLibraryExA Loaded module

wine: Unhandled exception, starting debugger...
err:seh:start_debugger Couldn't start debugger ("/usr/local/bin/winedbg

Read the Wine Developers Guide on how to set up winedbg or another debugger
X Error of failed request:  BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)

I have downloaded the commdlg.dll and enterd:

"commdlg" = "native"

in the ~/.wine/config file, but as you see, the error message shows that 
wine is using the builtin commdlg.dll, and this happens also when I use wine 
--debugmsg +loaddll -dll commdlg=native Logic.exe

How can I solve this?

><wine>/documentation/samples/config should be about right for this.
