If you using 8.6 drivers - they are no good.
Wine since January had several improvements that ... of course doesn't work with ATi because of poor quality drivers.

The only things you can do to get it back up and running:
1. Use old Wine version and forget about all new features
2. Get nVidia card and forget about ATi nightmares.
