[Wine]permissions, kernel-2.6.8, and wine-20040813

Yesterday I upgraded to kernel 2.6.8 on my Fedora Core 2 system. This
caused a problem with the version of wine I'd been using (20040505),
so I upgraded wine to the current version (20040813).

The remaining problem is as follows:

I'm calling wine like this:

   wine start.exe vcbuild.bat

and vcbuild.bat contains the following:

   set QMAKESPEC=win32-msvc.net
   set QTDIR=F:\wine\qt\3.2.1-nc\msvc.net
   set PATH=%PATH%;%QTDIR%\bin

   set PATH=F:\wine\msvc++tk2003\bin;%PATH%
   set INCLUDE=F:\wine\msvc++tk2003\include;F:\wine\OpenSSL\include;%INCLUDE%
   set LIB=F:\wine\msvc++tk2003\lib;F:\wine\OpenSSL\lib\VC;%LIB%


This worked fine before, but now runs successfully only as root, and gives
this error for non-root users:

fixme:exec:ShellExecuteExW32 flags ignored: 0x00000500
fixme:exec:SHELL_ExecuteW Strange error set by CreateProcess: 203
fixme:exec:SHELL_ExecuteW Strange error set by CreateProcess: 203
Application could not be started, or no application associated with the specifi
ed file.
ShellExecuteEx failed: Environment variable not found

The fact that it works for root but not for a normal user makes me think that
it's a permissions problem, but I don't see what the relevant permissions are.
Google turns up nothing useful which contains any of these error strings, so
I'm stumped. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
