It looks like interaction of problems in wine and Xserver (or whatever else).
Try the following:
- Run the installer till you are "logged off"
- Look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old (or at another place, where the Xserver log is
present), especially at the end of the file. If it is an Xserver crash, you
will probably see it there. It's necessary to look at the .old file,
because the current one comes from the newly started Xserver, which didn't
crash yet :-).
Please post the important part of the log here.
