You can always remove the floppy link. On current versions of Wine, just 
delete the ~/.wine/dosdevices/a: link.

When weird symptoms like this are occurring that don't affect anyone 
else, the first thing I would suspect is that there might be an old 
version of Wine around, or some remaining files from an old version of Wine.

Another thing to try is to rename your .wine directory and your Wine C: 
drive. Run a Wine program (notepad) and it will recreate both from 
scratch. Does the problem still occur?

Does Wine show a debug prompt when the crash happens?
