Unrelated to your current issue, but if you are using the 64bit userland
in Gentoo, anything requiring ODBC will likely have issues. That's
because wine in a gentoo 64bit userland will not compile with native
support for ODBC using unixODBC, since the 32bit version is not
available. Will have to wait for portage to have true multilib support,
but again, that's completely unrelated to your main problem, and is more
of a head's up if you try to run anything requiring ODBC under wine.

You've already got a response on the main issue you're having so I won't
repeat it here. Happy gentoo'ing :-)
