These fixme, stub messages are wine warning you that whatever program
you are running is using a part of the windows api that has not been
fully implemented by wine. Reinstalling wine itself will not help this
at all. If a specific fixme (or stub) is preventing your application
from running you can file bug reports to bring this to the attention
of the developers so that they can know that it is important to finish
that particular api.

Deleting the ~/.wine will get rid of any bad setup (unnecessary usage
of native dlls) that the user has done.
