Execute "wineboot".

I run it (very occasionally) with this in my ~/.wine/config. Seems to work.

"oleaut32"     = "native, builtin"
"ole32"        = "native, builtin"
"comctl32"     = "native"
"rpcrt4"       = "native"

And of course that requires that the corresponding native Windows DLLs 
be installed.
