I didn't see anything odd there, except your box is newer than mine :-).
Set a sensible resolution (800x600, or 1024x768), open an xterm, and

wine {your-program} options. It will probably throw spoonfuls of errors,
and the fixme's are often bug worthy. This


gives a list of the channels. Stuff like this, for instance

fixme:ole:CoCreateInstance no instance created for interface
{2933bf81-7b36-11d2-b20e-00c04f983e60} of class
{2933bf90-7b36-11d2-b20e-00c04f983e60}, hres is 0x80004001
fixme:actctx:QueryActCtxW 80000010 0x100b4290 (nil) 1 0x612ee290 8 (nil)

might be best approached with

WINEDEBUG=+ole+actctx wine {your-program} > bugfile 2>&1

then grok that bugfile.
