[Wine] boot timeout problems, e.g. winecfg

I have the problem that every application I start with wine takes about 30 seconds to start. 
It then prints the following message:

> err:process:__wine_kernel_init boot event wait timed out

As far as I can remember this problem this problem exists since I installed SuSE 11.1 (wine 1.1.10?). I see the problems on both of my machines.
E.g. set-up of my desktop:

> :~> cat /etc/SuSE-release 
> openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
> VERSION = 11.1
> :~> uname -a
> Linux 5356CDEF #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
> :~> wine --version
> wine-1.1.14


> :~> winecfg
> err:process:__wine_kernel_init boot event wait timed out
> :~> 

--> No other error messages
--> After that the applications run fine. It's really only the 30 sec delay that bothers me.

This problem occurs with every application I use with wine on both machines using SuSE 11.1. It did not occur on SuSE 11.0 or 10.3.

I have ALSA and OSS installed. ALSA works, but I disabled it for the moment. There are only two DLLs that I override:
d3dx9_35, d3dx9_36

Any ideas how to avoid this boot timeout?
