I upgraded WINE a week or two ago and then I started getting this same
type of message. I tinkered and fought and finally gave up. Then a
couple of days ago I pointed my sources.list to woody and updated again.
That problem went away. My favorite app ("Backgammon, by George")
crashes a lot now, when it was pretty stable two WINE versions ago, but
at least I can usually get in one and a half games before it just winks
out of existence.
Sorry this isn't a real solution for you, but it might help somehow.
