I have no idea what caused your error, but this is one thing you should 
never do. It will make bad this happen in your life, not the least of 
which is your code will mutate and eat your kittens.

Running wine as root will create a .wine in /root/. At the very least 
the regular users will not be able to read the wine installation.
