1) don't ever run wine as root, this is not needed and unsecure and will
give you the kind of problems you are experiencing.
2) delete your wine directory to be sure to get a new clean .wine
directory: rm -rf ~/.wine
3)type wine as normal user, it will recreate the needed directories
4)run wine whatever.exe and it should work
