Were you running wine as root?  If not, it's probably entirely unrelated. 

If so, it might be unrelated, but if you always log in as root, there's a good 
chance it wasn't related as well:  Consider that as your reason why you 
shouldn't run as root.

In either case, if the files weren't writable to the user you were running as, 
it wasn't wine.  This gets tricky to troubleshoot if you're running as root:  
All files are writeable to that user.
