Is this a release from XQuartz? If not, then it is not official and should not be used.

Report this to the XQuartz team. Part of what they are trying to do is make OpenGL games work with XQuartz through Wine until a Mac specific port is developed. Please check if your game has one before reporting as the XQuartz team will tell you that as a response.
One question thought, and you did not state it here. Did you rebuild Wine after installing the beta? If not, appropriate functions are not included and thus Wine will appear broken.
