Not seeing that here, and I am also running Office 2007 Enterprise with SP2, on 64 bit openSUSE 11.4 using the distro 1.3.28 package. 

First question: is this a clean wineprefix--nothing else installed (not even failed attempts to install something)?
Second question: is it a 32 bit wineprefix (created with WINEARCH=win32)?
Third question: is the Windows version set to XP? 

If Office is trying to repair, then your wineprefix is clearly messed up. Delete it and reinstall following the howto in the AppDB. If that doesn't fix it, post terminal output.
