I appreciate your response.  If possible, however, I would like for you to
go into greater detail as to why I shouldn't run wine as root.  Actually, I
always login as a user, then upgrade to super user (I realize this is
effectively the same as root).  To my understanding, not running programs as
root is only a security precaution and shouldn't affect program
functionality.  Am I wrong?
