Thanks for your valuable hint, but it's not the case here. My wine package is
strictly isolated at /opt/wine and except user's .wine directory, there are no
other wine's files on the system. And because I'm installing new versions by
cd /opt ; rm -r wine ; tar xIvf wine.tar.bz2 , I think that it's safe to say
that no old file can survive this :-).
Since my first post, I did a full wine build on the subjected machine; however,
the resulting binary crashes exactly the same way as the imported binary
package, which I think proved that the problem is not caused by some binary
incompatibility between the build and running system.
