Running cabarc.exe under Wine: FCICreate() failed

has anyone succeeded in running Miscrosoft's cabarc.exe on Linux? 
The "wine cabarc.exe n *.class *.gif *.au" fails with:

  Microsoft (R) Cabinet Tool - Version 5.1.2600.0
  Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved..

  Creating new cabinet '' with compression 'MSZIP':
  FCICreate() failed: code 4 [Could not create a temporary file]

I then look into my home dir and see many zero-sized ~/xx1234.tmp 
files. When I run strace, I notice error messages like:

  ioctl(9, VFAT_IOCTL_READDIR_BOTH, 0x40590850) = -1 
  ENOTTY (Inappropriate ioctl for device)

But not sure if they are the reason. The full strace output 
and the binary can be found at
I'm using RedHat and 2.4.20 kernel.
