[Wine] Having long term, critical issues with WoW

I've been having some problems with WoW for the past month that have just gotten worse and worse.
I'm running Ubuntu 8.10, 2.6.27-7 generic for a kernel
The CPU is a P4 3.0 ghz, sporting 2 GB of RAM
I'm running with a 512 MB GeForce 7600 GS, AGP 8X, w driver 173.14.12
My wine is 1.1.9, as of the time of this writing
Ok problems started shortly after upgrading to 8.10. At first I'd occasionally get the dreaded "Error 132" crash from WoW. I did not think much of it at first. A few days pass, and a few updates, including wine, and the problem becomes MUCH more frequent. The 3.0 patch hits and not as if on cue, I would error 132 crash almost always 15 minutes after logging in. It got so bad, that I simply would no longer see a login screen after getting past the launcher, and just immediately 132 crash.
At this point I had had enough. So I started researching causes of the 132 crash. Following some advice, I decided to reinstall WoW. I wiped it out of the .wine folder, grabbed my DVD's and started installing. The install crashed on a 132 error also. It repeatedly crashes in the same place. There's nothing in the terminal output from running this except a "fixme", wondering where the "FrizQuadratta" font is.
So I need some help figuring this one out, because I really don't want to have to rerig a boot option for a windows install to run WoW. Please lemme know what info I can put together to help you diagnose this. I'm tech savvy, but an admitted Linux newb, so please make your diagnostic question easy to follow, so I can give you the best information possible.
Thanks a lot, in advance to all who'll lend a hand!
