DDE relates to interprocess communication. For example, some programs 
have a button to click to bring up a website in the Windows internet 
browser (IE or Mozilla or whatever). They do that by establishing a dde 
connection to the browser, then sending a string to the browser with the 
URL to bring up.

I guess maybe there are some kind of messages that installers can send 
to the desktop. You are probably seeing the messages now, perhaps 
because recent additions to the Wine code exposed the fact there is no 
emulated desktop to talk to (really just a wild guess on my part)?
