No.  You shouldn't be logging in as admin for everyday tasks anyway:
Not running things as root is by no means limited to wine.  You
shouldn't ever log in as admin or root unless you actually have a need
to do so.

Use sudo or whatever the GUI tool is for running things as another user
when you need to run something as root, not the other way around.  Never
log in as root or admin.
