[Wine] Wine does not start apps when connected to a Windows network

I'm having this weird problem with all computers I have tried, but they all 
run Gentoo so it may still be a configuration problem.  What happens is that 
all apps run through Wine work fine on my computer, but if I start another 
computer in the network in Windows, I am not able to start most applications 
with Wine; or rather, they hang foverer instead of starting.  This happens to 
nearly all applications, but not all.  Examples that work fine include 
regedit, but winecfg and wordpad do not.

Does anyone have a solution for this?  It is especially troublesome when 
playing network games, as you can imagine.
