You can remove the offending fonts from your X font server; a few do 
break Wine.

Or a better solution, if you have a reasonably current Linux version, is 
to create a windows\Fonts directory in your Windows directory, and stick 
some TrueType fonts in it. You can get the fonts from a real Windows 
install (in C:\windows\Fonts) and also from:

That will cause Wine to use direct Font rendering, which in general is a 
good thing (better performance and quality).
