But, when I turn off MIRC, and turn it back on, the whole thing wants to reload. Very annoying since that means it's not saving settings. Any ideas?

Normal Wine on Macs is compiled in Terminal, or done for you with Fink or Macports, but still compiled from source, then all ran command line. You are probably using WineBottler's Wine.app which is a 3rd party app.
X11.app or XQuartz is required on Macs for Wine because Wine is made for X11... all other OSes that Wine runs on use X11 is their main windowing interface... Macs don't.
Just for the heck of it, I made a quick Wineskin wrapper (WS7Wine1.2.2 engine) for mIRC and put 7.19 in it and it seems to work just fine, and remembers info from what I had last time it ran... so it should be possible... but Wineskin has its own X11 built in much like Crossover has their own built in.
