Yeeees would be, but I already checked all binaries but couldn't find 
any configuration or registry key :-(

Well in fact there is no support for it.

As far as I can see, it simply takes the first available interface ...

Is there any way to analyse it i.e. via wine- debug switches ?

In past I had a similar probelm. That time I ran them inside a UML where 
I defined the interface/IP via a tun/tap device, but this is somewhat 
too big effort for such a simple thing.
May be there exists some kind of tool in which interfaces/IPs are 
enabled and through which wine could be started (something like a 
application tunnel or firewall ) ?

Every idea is welcome ;-)  !
