No. If you don't have $HOME/.wine directory it will be created automatically by 'wineprefixcreate' when you run Wine. This is even before you get to start anything (be it winecfg or your setup.exe)

Create a step-by-step procedure that can reproduce one bug at a time EVERY TIME. Add that to your bug report. Having loads of problems with no clear way to reproduce them doesn't help developers to fix the problem.

As a workaround indicated in the bug report use tahoma.ttf from windows.
