I think you must mean 1.1.7. You can check by typing wine --version in the terminal.  

There is definitely something wrong with your setup. Rename your ~/.wine to something else, then run winecfg from the terminal. A new ~/.wine will automatically be created. If the display appears normal for the fresh wineprefix, then something you installed in the old one borked the display settings.
