Don't worry about that message. It doesn't affect how µTorrent uploads  
or downloads. No need to run root specifically for that.

Also, you should try using µTorrent 1.8.1 instead of 1.6.1. There's a  
lot of wine-specific code (not to mention changes in how µT works in  
general) in there to make things work. Also, i *believe* (but dont  
quote me on this), µT doesn't even try the ICMP ping in 1.8.1  
anymore.  So you won't need to run as root.
