WineTools is not tested very well with this version of Wine. And I had
a similar effect because of Fedoras prelinking mechanism. For a short
test you can disable it by executing

prelink -uav
rm -f /etc/prelink.cache

and try again. Prelinking will be enabled automatically next time cron
starts the /etc/cron.daily/prelink script. Or you can do that manually.
