It would probably better to bundle a version of Wine with the
application (like Picasa), which would prevent this issue... (It would
make the detection code unnecessary as well, since you know that the
version will always run under Wine)

This should not be used as an alternative to reporting bugs though...
(Although doing it in parallel might be a nice trade-off)
