	Personally, I always try with clean WINE before submitting a bug report. This 
is very simple:

rm -rf ~/.clean-wine
export WINEPREFIX=~/.clean-wine

	Then install your game by running its installer (make sure that you are doing 
everything in same terminal which have WINEPREFIX pointing to clean wine 
prefix directory). After doing this try to run it from installation 
directory. If it still doesn't work then this is bug in WINE. If terminal 
output is different, output from clean WINE should be proffered.
	Please note that your ~/.wine will not be touched - by doing this in a way I 
described you always be able to test with clean wine prefix directory with 
very little additional effort and always be sure that the bug you going to 
report is real bug.
	Thanks for using WINE.
