I found the cause of the problem, regedit.exe that is located in
/home/yourlogin/.wine/drive_c/windows/ is a symbolic link and was
pointing to /usr/lib/wine, which contained an old copy of regedit.exe.so, ie
regedit.exe -> /usr/lib/wine/regedit.exe.so
The current version of wine 0.9.20's regedit was actually in
So to correct the problem I did the following ...
Now if I type regedit in a terminal window it works fine. :)
So I guess the installation procedure (if you are using ./configure,
make depend, make, make install) fails to remove these old symbolic
links that were used in earlier versions of wine.
