It appears that the necessary fonts are missing from Ubuntu.  Thus the 
tabs appear blank and so does most everything else.  This does not 
appear to be what I originally thought at first glance. 

Might I suggest deinstalling Wine from the Synaptic interface and then 
looking for any occurances on your Ubuntu installation.  You may have a 
great deal of work to in order to remove all traces of Wine from your 
system before attempting a second installation from the Synaptic repository.
