You might have two sessions of wineserver running at the same time 
(although that is highly unlikely, it is possible.)

You might want to look at the running processes when you have both Wine 
versions running or are you trying to stop one and start another.

Then you might want to try:

/usr/local/bin/wineserver -k

(this kills all of the Wine processes running under a specific 
wineserver session and then shuts down wineserver.)

Then start the next wine session for Wine 1.3 from the build directory 
(or wherever you put it.)
