Thanks Vitamin.

To address your points:  I don't believe I'm running Compiz, my default desktop window manager is Kwin and I don't have anything running other than the effects being enabled.  So I went ahead and unchecked the "Enable Desktop Effects" box in the System Settings GUI. Upon retrying to launch the game I got the same error codes as before.

I also had already checked the "Emulate a Virtual Desktop" tab.  

I'm not sure if it's a new error or I just hadn't noticed before but I have now noticed that I am getting the following error once I put the focus back on the Terminal window.:

err:ole:CoUninitialize Mismatched CoUninitialize

Even changing all my settings back to what they were before I still get this new error.

Something else that occurred to me, it may or may not help, is that I can not launch Baldur's Gate from a shortcut like I can NWN2.  The only way I can sucessfully launch it is with the Terminal; otherwise it auto closes before even loading the WINE Desktop environment.
