Only the older version was available in the add/remove programs thing, presumably because it is more stable, and I assumed that is the one that is doing the leg work, hence not mentioning 1.1.42 before. I imagine this probably changes the dynamic of the problem somewhat.

Sounds like you downloaded a source package. You can't just stick a source file in ~/.wine; you need to compile it and install it. Installing a distro package is easier, and Ubuntu definitely has updated ones. You probably have to add another repository; ask on the Ubuntu forum which one.
