This is generally a symptom of a pthreads incompatiblity. I am guessing 
you are using RH9? Try running configure in the wine source directory as 
"./configure --with-nptl". The "with-nptl" tells it to use the new 
threading scheme in RH9. You would then need to recompile Wine, so first 
probably do "make distclean".
