Such a "stack smashing" is hard to resolve. You could try running with
WINEDEBUG=+relay and pipe into a file. Look at the the file and try to find
the occurance of the stack overflow. Work upwards in the the flow of API
calls and try to find something intruigung.

The other posibility is to start the program in winedbg. If you have a
little luck, a sensible backtrace is produced and will give some hint.
