Are there any other common Linux daemons that might be running in the background interfering with wine or applications running under wine?

I suggest that you take a look at what services are running, research
what they do, and kill them if you don't need them. HAL is one that
comes to mind, if you don't need auto mount, SSH is another if you
don't log in remotely. Not every service will help specifically with
wine, but cutting down on the ones you don't need will make your whole
system more responsive, more stable, and in many cases more secure.
