[Wine] CS:S and other steam games won't start

My Steam install under wine seems to be in a rather strange state. I was only playing a couple of Valve games (TF2, CS:S), and I decided to add Left 4 Dead 2 to the mix, which worked fine. However, every other Steam game I had then stopped working.
For example, I start CS:S and I get the "preparing to start game...." box, and nothing happens; same sequence with my other steam games. Oddly, Left 4 Dead 2 still worked fine.
I have since reinstalled wine (upgraded to 1.3, was running 1.2 before) and reinstalled steam and CS:S, but the same problem persists. I could reinstall other games, but I don't see much point if I'm going to have to tear it all down anyway.
Any ideas for fixes? I'm running Kubuntu 10.04. If there's a more appropriate place to post this problem, please let me know.
