A little strange. Maybe they have compiled Wine in such a way that the 
winspool file isn't used. In which case maybe you have pieces left over 
from another Wine install? Which might be conflicting.

Otherwise, I guess query the package maintainers, or get the source and 
compile it (in which case, be sure to uninstall the old package).
