That is strange and with most Unixes, would not work. I guess the folks at Ubuntu figured it out and got it working.
However, this does not address why Hamachi suddenly stopped working under Wine. My guess is that the network is not accessable. It would be interesting to see what a ping/traceroute looks like to the other systems attempting to connect, if that is possible to do.

I agree. It is very unusual to have the system in the hosts file twice.
