Out of curiosity, does your keyboard input happen to appear in the 
terminal window that you launched the application from?  I have had apps 
in the past where the keyboard input never gets sent to the app, like 
the terminal doesn't want to let go of it. An example (for me) is Jedi 
Knight Jedi Outcast. The workaround (for this game at least) was to 
change the resolution using the game settings. As soon as the game had 
to reinitialize itself it seemed to grab the keyboad back and all was good.

YMMV.... it's a thought, at least.

What version of wine are you running?

wine --version
