Thanks for the link to the FAQ - what worries me: if I follow the steps described there, am I not going to lose the menu entries for wincfg, the uninstaller and "Browse C:\ drive" as well?

Yes. You can always just browse to those directories and manually delete only the items you want.

There's a whole thread here somewhere about menu problems in Gnome, and AFAIK, there is no solution yet.

That error window is just telling you that something crashed, which you know anyway from the console output. 

Try this: in winecfg, set gdiplus to builtin only, then try running the app.
