Your Kernel is not correct configured to work with Wine.
3GB User Memory Area is needed, but some kernels are compiled 
with 2GB/2GB splitting.
Many Windows Applications expect the Heap at a fixed address.

The suggested change in system.reg is not the Reason for the above

The Name "PS Driver" was replaced in November 2006.
We now use the Printer-Name also for the Drivername

This is the correct Path for NT Drivers since W2K

This is the wrong Path for Win9x Drivers in Windows NT

Your change will break many Applications, when the emulated
Windows-Version is Windows 2000 (This is the default since ~2 Years)

With a recent chage (wine-0.9.45), wine set both entries for the Drivers

You can delete the Registry-Path
and wine create all needed entries.

The above Heap-Problem is the Result of a false configured

The Bug-Report for the Driver-Path reached http://bugs.winehq.org a
Month ago and my Fix was in Wine one Day later.
Wine-0.9.45 includes the Fix.
