[Wine] Re: Setting Virtual Memory For Wine Apps

Let me clearlify the whole situation. I will include only relevant details I know.
The latest stable version of Wine 1.2 found in Mint repositories would allow me to install but not activate Manga Studio Debut 4. Activation requires two things: a code and Manga Studio cd detected in cd drive. I had to go to Wine 1.3 to get the cd detected during the activation wizard. I was then able to start the app fine with 1.3.
I remastered my distro at that point with Remastersys. I burned and booted. I was not able to start Manga Studio in a Live Session. (I need to do this for security and proprietary reasons).
With some troubleshooting Live, I was able to install and activate and run when I used super user to install and run Manga Studio. Realizing this worked, I remastered a new copy with Manga Studio installed as superuser. I ran it live and now Manga Studio launched.
What happened differently when I launched live was that only root was given the opportunity to change the virtual memory for the program (through a dialog). I never got that warning as non-super user. The program just exited with errors I've printed more than once in the previous discussion http://forum.winehq.org/viewtopic.php?t=14547&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=).
This has led me to think, if and only if it is Wine's virtual memory being adjusted, then I maybe I can do that for non-super user. So my question is, how to change the virtual memory for the non-admin user so program will start in Live Session? Or, if not a virtual memory problem, what direction do I need to go in to trouble shoot more?
I'm also puzzled that the wiki tells me never to run wine as sudo, but I actually found a use for it. A program was launched under Wine that otherwise would not launch Live!
