Correct me, if i am wrong. But didn't dimesio already explain that
this wasn't a 64bit (specific) issue, alone. He mentioned  bug
reports. This would imply, you would have this issue in wine
32bit/multilib (on 64bit OS) anyway....

Dimesio quotes;

Reading the bug reports, it's pretty clear this is an Ubuntu-specific
problem. I'm sure if i tried running this same stuff on my Archlinux64
+ multilib, i probably wouldn't have this issue.

Ubuntu needs to fix this for their user-base, as it appears trying to
workaround this issue is essentially a no go.

but someone can correct me, if i am reading into this incorrectly.
