32 bpp color??

I'm trying to run Unreal Editor using wine. When I start it, an
error box pops up with the header "Critical Error" and the contents
"Editor requires desktop set to 32 bit resolution". My assumption is
that it wants 32bpp color, which is what I'm running. I've tried
setting "ScreenDepth" = "32", but that didn't help. It's a little
misleading, because the screen depth is actually 24 bits even though
it uses 32 bits per pixel. I know I'm running at 32bpp because of
this log line in my X logs:

(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 24, (**) framebuffer bpp 32

Details of system:

wine 20031118
xfree 4.3.0
nvidia driver 1.0.4496
kernel 2.4.20-gentoo-r9

My current x11drv section of config:
