If you did that you broke Wine! Never use root to run Wine. EVER!
Remember that unlike broken by design platforms (such as dos and windows) by default creates files writable by everyone. Not so on *NIX. If another user (especially root) creates a file no one else can edit it (in most default configurations).

That said. You broke your Wine configuration. Remove ~/.wine directory (yes you will have to use 'sudo rm -rf ~/.wine' to remove all files your user can't touch.
