Errp, sorry, gmail only showed the first three posts, I have 0.9.32 as
my wine version, try these setings (backup your WTF file first!).

My machine is on an Athlon64 (nForce4 Ultra/ASUS), with a 7300GS (BFG)

1) Set wine to use a virtual window/desktop of 1024x768, hardware
video accel, and don't let Direct X apps prevent cursor from exiting
the screen. It should work full screen, but I've never tried, I know
this config works. (DX apps crashing in full screen tend to bork the X
server's output to some obnoxious resoution without informing the
session manager, at least in KDE)

2) Go to the base of the WoW install directory and: chmod -Rv 775 *
    This will make sure you can access everything as needed (u+rwx, g+rwx, o+rx)

3) Here is my WTF (The graphics settings are a tad high for my 7300,
but your card shouldn't flinch at them):
SET readTOS "1"
SET readEULA "1"
SET readScanning "-1"
SET readContest "-1"
SET locale "enUS"
SET hwDetect "0"
SET gxColorBits "24"
SET gxDepthBits "24"
SET gxResolution "1024x768"
SET gxRefresh "60"
SET gxMultisampleQuality "0.000000"
SET fullAlpha "1"
SET SmallCull "0.010000"
SET DistCull "500.000000"
SET trilinear "1"
SET frillDensity "48"
SET farclip "597"
SET specular "1"
SET pixelShaders "1"
SET particleDensity "1.000000"
SET unitDrawDist "300.000000"
SET movie "0"
SET expansionMovie "0"
SET realmList "us.logon.worldofwarcraft.com"
SET timingTestError "0"
SET realmName "Arathor"
SET gameTip "7"
SET shadowLevel "0"
SET anisotropic "4"
SET M2UsePixelShaders "1"
SET Gamma "1.000000"
SET lastCharacterIndex "2"
SET MusicVolume "0"
SET SoundVolume "1"
SET MasterVolume "1"
SET weatherDensity "1"
SET AmbienceVolume "0.60000002384186"
SET uiScale "1"

Hope that helps,
