Maybe you missed what Austin was trying to tell you.  There is a BUG in UBUNTU that causes the error that you describe.  The FAQ answer that Austin was pointing you to is a workaround for this bug that we found with the Wine project.

Next:  How are you invoking Qemu to work with Wine?  I have a PowerPC as well as an Intel and would like to work through the PowerPC bugs to see if they are valid or not with the latest Wine build.

Thank you.
