	If this doesn't happen on Windows then this is probably a WINE bug. In this 
case you should report it at http://bugs.winehq.org .
	Before reporting a bug make sure to reinstall your game in clean WINE:

mv ~/.wine{,.backup}
wine setup.exe
cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Games/WOW/
wine game.exe

	Where "setup.exe" is the setup executable, "Games/WOW" where is your game is 
installed and "game.exe" is the main game' executable. Please note that you 
*must* to cd to the directory with the game first. If you forget this many 
games may fail to work.
	If above doesn't help then report a bug. Please note that most developers 
even don't read this mailing list so reporting a bug at 
http://bugs.winehq.org is important if you want to get it fixed.

	Thank you for using WINE.
