[Wine] Unhandled exception launching games from Steam

So after years of running a 'pure' Linux machine, I finally decided to install Wine so I could play some of my old games - and it's been a disaster.  Using either Wine 1.5.3 or 1.3.3 trying to launch Half-Life Source results in nothing happening, trying to launch from the commandline gives this stack trace:

wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000000 at address 0x3ae67f (thread 0009), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: page fault on read access to 0x00000000 in 32-bit code (0x003ae67f).

I'm using the proprietary nVidia drivers v295.40, I have the Steam in-game and cloud nonsense all turned off and the gameroverlayrenderer disabled.  As suggested on the Steam page here, I installed corefonts, vcrun2005, vcrun2008, and d3dx9; all using winetricks (Steam was also installed using winetricks).  My distro is openSUSE 12.1 64bit.

Out of desperation I tried running a brand new game, the Sanctum demo.  This has been confirmed working over at SteamGamesOnLinux, but all I get is nothing happening in Steam, and this when ran from the commandline:

err:module:import_dll Library d3dx9_43.dll (which is needed by L"H:\\.local\\share\\wineprefixes\\steam\\dosdevices\\c:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\sanctum\\Binaries\\Win32\\SanctumGame-Win32-Shipping.exe") not found
err:module:import_dll Library X3DAudio1_7.dll (which is needed by L"H:\\.local\\share\\wineprefixes\\steam\\dosdevices\\c:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\sanctum\\Binaries\\Win32\\SanctumGame-Win32-Shipping.exe") not found

Even though d3dx9_43.dll is in system32 of both the Steam and default wineprefixes.  I must be doing something basic wrong, but I can't work out what - can anyone help?
