I know this doesn't answer your question, and seems stupid, but what
kind of service are we talking about here?  The so-called Win 9x-style
service (which is started when one 'boots' Windows, although I'm not
sure how that would be loaded/started/emulated, maybe through wineboot?)
or the 2K/Me/XP style service?  And which OS emulation mode is setup in
your wine config?  I have seen that later version Windows OS emulations
are more incomplete -- for example, wininet/winsock doesn't appear to
work (either at all, or very well) in XP mode, as opposed to being fully
functional in 98 mode.

Sorry if I didn't help.
