That's correct - you asking ssh to login and start that app and not the remote shell.

You have to use nohup and stderr redirection if you want to start Wine program in a background like that. RTFM more about "daemonising" a program - disconnecting it from the terminal and keeping it running. This has nothing to do with Wine but the basics of using *NIX shell.
