What about making a dedicated wine user with wine installed in its home directory
eg /home/wine/.wine 

Then when a user wants to use wine they can start up wine or winefile by running the program as that user like:

sudo -u wine winefile

This way everybody will be running as the same user and it might also allow multiple users to run wine at the same time without coruption because they (might) be all using the same wineserver.

Just a guess, can't try it at work because we are being forced to use windoze :(
