It is not a combination. You are conflating unrelated problems.

One: A kernel bug exposed by Wine and a recent WoW patch  

Two: A change in winex11 in 1.1.43 that exposed a bug in the nVidia 185.xx.xx drivers. The fix for that is to upgrade to the 195 or later drivers. http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22426

Three: I have no idea what package you are talking about, unless it's the lib32-nvidia-utils package that caused problems for Arch Linux users. Lots of people report problems caused by various missing packages. They are not all related. 

Four: I have seen no evidence of this on the forum, and I read it every day. The only report of any problem with this driver came from the aforementioned Arch Linux users, and that was a distro package problem. If Wine were really "broken" under the 256 driver I would expect to see a lot of posts about it.
