Good, I expected that, but did it also enable the communication?

I will have to look into this a bit further to see what really the right
fix is, I may have to come back to you.

I am not sure if this is a problem.

Describe this more clearly. What is update supposed to do? Does set 'the
text font' bring up the common font selection dialog?

Is this a showstopper for using this program?

And I cannot remember what Wine version you are using.

Something you can try is to use X (server side rendered) fonts only. In
your ~/.wine/config make sure the following entries are set to "N": 

; Use the Render extension to render client side fonts (default "Y")
"ClientSideWithRender" = "N"
; Fallback on X core requests to render client side fonts (default "Y")
"ClientSideWithCore" = "N"
; Set both of the previous two to "N" in order to force X11 server side fonts

(restore if the result is negative).

Maybe, but not from this trace.

I would expect a prompt like winedbg> here. Type 'bt' for the real
information (if we are lucky).

I have cc'd wine-users again. Please keep this discussion on the list.
