That makes sense. Honestly, I have never previously prioritized using wine on my systems. I occasionally try and hope, but if it fails I just move on to something else. Part of me wishes strongly there was no need for wine--that people would just abandon Windows, stop developing for it, etc. I know that isn't very likely, but I try my best to keep as far from Windows as possible.
That being said, to get Torchlight working I delved more deeply into wine than ever I have previously. I must admit I've become intrigued and will probably try to get more up to speed. I think your advice is likely very good regarding compiling wine myself, and I will seriously consider doing just that in the near future. However, on a related note, I hope the libraries aren't too difficult to come by. I tried compiling VLC a while back and was having to go to such great lengths to gather up all the correct libraries. I finally just gave up and decided to make do with the slightly buggy version I got through repos.
Anyway, thanks again for the advice and explanations. Hopefully I will soon have a more thorough understanding and not find myself so frustrated next time I try to run something via wine! No promises, though...;P
