If Debian 3.1 should support kernel 2.6 this bug is clearly RC, it's
usually not acceptable that an application doesn't work with a supported
kernel (exceptions are packages that are specific for some kernel
versions, but Wine is obviously not among them).
I consider it ridiculous to say a bug isn't RC if it will for sure still
hit people using 2.6.0 - you could decrease the severity today and
increase the severity again once 2.6.0 is out, but this wouldn't help
