It's like you looked inside my computer!  Spooky..  but spot on  :)

Correct in every element,  so yes I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 64bit..  I'm guessing this must be the main issue then.   

Correct also on the second game (return to castle wolfenstein),  I will try to hunt down the older thread..  presumably I'm going to run into a similar problem again though.

Not great news for me I guess,  but at least I know it's not something I'm doing wrong.  I'll keep an eye on future WINE updates until the compatibility issues are resolved.

Again,  many thanks for your response and helpful information.
