Just adding this in case anyone comes looking later:

Pylotro seems to be grabbing one of the three needed 'chunks' of patch 
at a time, and not always seeing there is more. Some people on the Lotro 
forums have been able to continually rerun the patch process, sometimes 
taking many tries, until it manages to find and complete all three 
chunks. Others have patched a windows install and copied the Lotro 
folder from that to overwrite their wine Lotro folder (inside user/drive 
c/program files/turbine).

Even this morning with the servers no longer overloaded (no time outs, 
delays, or drops) I was not able to get the patcher to grab anything 
else, it still insisted it already had everything but the game said I 
was out of date. I was able to copy from windows and have verified that 
as working with no obvious issues in Wine 1.3.28.
