It has been quite awhile since I used Wine with lprng, but I am not sure 
where you obtained the settings for win.ini. Go to here:

and check section, and I don't know why that is so heavily 
subdivided ;)

That really does need to say
Wine PostScript Driver=WINEPS,LPT1:

I could be mistaken, but I believe the "Wine PostScript Driver" part 
refers to the heading in the registry.

Same there, and you also need the PrinterPorts section.

Also, I notice that you didn't show this section of the registry, but 
since you had the others, I'll assume this one is okay.
