Okay, I got the log, and thought I would post the problem here, since it 
might be of general interest. It turns out that these messages:

come about because the PPD file you are using does not have any entries 
(usually at the end of the file) like these:
*DefaultFont: Courier
*Font AvantGarde-Book: Standard "(001.006S)" Standard ROM
*Font AvantGarde-BookOblique: Standard "(001.006S)" Standard ROM
... (lots more)

I can trigger all your symptoms (including not be able to print from 
Wine apps) and trace file by deleting that section from my PPD.

I suspect that Wine should behave correctly without those entries; I 
don't think they are a required part of PPD files, but I could be wrong 

In the meantime, try just copying the entries from the Wine supplied 
generic.ppd file into the i560.ppd file that is presumably in 
/etc/cups/ppd or somewhere similar. That might make things work for you. 
Delete the ~/.wine and let winecfg recreate it; Wine won't detect that 
the PPD file has changed.

Also, where did you get the PPD file that you are using with the i560?
