	Uninstall your current package with Wine and try to compile from source. 
Don't afraid, that's very simple! Download 
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/wine/wine-0.9.30.tar.bz2 , unpack it, cd 
to just created directory and execute:

	./configure --verbose && make all && sudo make install

	And that's it, you have Wine compiled from source. It is likely that this 
will work for you and if so then package with Wine in your distribution is 
broken. I assume that you have used precompiled package because it is typical 
(oh, maybe not actually typical but it happens) for precompiled Wine packages 
to not work correctly.
