Chances are, a rename wouldn't solve the problem - it might break wine. 
However, I believe you're perfectly allowed to try creating a link of
some sort (symbolic or otherwise) -- that might help.  Is your
wine-kthread chmodded to be executable by you?  Oh, and btw, the leading
slash before 'wine.bin-kthread' confused me a bit... not sure about the
other users though.

Hmm... are you referring to a driver, or a program to work with the data
recieved from the PVR?  Either way, you *would* have to worry about how
the PVR will be interpreted through both Lindows and then through
Wine... something you may want to think about.  Good luck though, and
hope that your hardware and software co-operate through Lindows.
