In fact the /tmp directory is as I believe it should be: world-writable + 

thanks anyhow.

I guess you are new to linux too.  It looks as if you have no /tmp
directory, or else permissions are wrong for it.

maybe you skipped installing the filesystem- rpm?

have root try

umask 0 && mkdir /tmp
chmod o+t /tmp

and try

regedit winedefault.reg

again.  Note regedit will only work with a winedefault.reg that is
accessible by a configured wine drive, so you may have to copy it from
the wine source to some other place where regedit can get at it.
