I am getting this as well:

    WINEPREFIX=~/.wine11 ./wine iexplore

I am also seeing this as well:

    WINEPREFIX=~/.wine10 /opt/wine/bin/wine iexplore

I suspect that it is a regression. My guess is that it is something in
either urlmon or the internet connection DLLs.

    WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-gecko /opt/wine/bin/wine iexplore # 1.0
    WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-gecko ./wine iexplore # 1.1
will get it so that the gecko engine is properly installed.

If you want a quick fix (and have 1.0 and 1.1 on your machine), you
can try the above (use 1.0 to install gecko, then switch to 1.1).

Looking through http://bugs.winehq.org, I have found that there is
already a bug report for this:
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14109. The issue has been
tracked down via regression testing, so there is nothing more that can
be done to help apart from testing the patches that are posted there
to address the problem.
