Well there you go, that's your problem and the reason for the continual 
crashes. You are running a glibc that does not have NPTL or TLS, and 
you will need to upgrade glibc to a version that does have such 
support. Or, configure the system correctly so that those libraries are 
properly detected and used.

This is not a wine issue, it is a Slackware one. You stand a better 
chance of finding out how to fix it by asking on the slack user

Do not run wine as root
Do not run wine as root
Do not run wine as root

It opens the door to incredible amounts of destrucction and devastation 
from Windows programs when they go wrong

I can't think of any valid reason, not even a debugging one, to run wine 
as root.
