The latter, mainly. My (possibly wrong) understanding is that recently 
the handling of X11 updates (which affects basically every program), was 
moved into the Wine server, and some improvements made along the way. 
This introduced a number of regressions, most of which have been fixed, 
but a few may still linger.

It really is fairly painless, though a fast internet connection and fast 
computer help tremendously.
