[Wine] World of Warcraft Launcher.exe keeps crashing

There's a small update to World of Warcraft today. When I run launcher.exe under Wine, it keeps crashing.

I read on this forum that doing "winetricks ie7" would solve the problem, but at the end of installing IE7, the setup program says:

Setup was unable to install the latest Windows Internet Explorer updates. After you restart your computer....etc. etc.

It gives me a restart now and restart later button. When I clicked the restart now button, I got a message saying that Regsvr32.exe had crashed. I did "winetricks ie7" again, and although I got the same message at the end, i didn't get told about a Regsvr32.exe crash.

I then ran Launcher.exe again and got another crash, but a different one. Whereas before it seemed very much like a crash in Wine and I got a dump in the terminal window I was running from, this crash seems more like a crash on Launcher.exe and I get the Blizzard "there has been a crash do you want to report it" window.

Does anyone have any ideas?
