I'm thinking to give up and use my patched wine.
We've proposed 3 patches that weren't accepted... I'm out of ideas and time.

If some volunteer with soft-ice debugger knowledge on windows (I'm not using it anymore since years...) can give a try at autocad installer where it does crash on linux, maybe we'll have some more hints.
With winegdb (and imo gdb also...) the installer stops early, so I can't trace the offending call in assembler (opengl bug).
For the other bug (bad registry entries), I traced it down to msi, but I've got not enough knowledge about it to solve.
The last "bug", the slowness of TT fonts.... well, for that one I guess we have to wait even longer, but autocad is usable even with it.

My opinion, by now is :
1) find somebody able (and with enough spare time...) to make a patched wine debian package
2) put it somewhere for download for people not able to build wine alone.

I'm quite happy with my autocad 2005 on linux, I'm using it on my daily job and it works good, so it may be worth a try.
