To work around Bug 1347, set Wine to Windows Vista mode in winecfg. To work around Bug 11681, set Safe Mode (gdi only) in Quicktime preferences.

I downloaded the QT only package from Apple.com with QT 7.6.6
After using the Installer QT would crash on startup. I guessed that this was related to the content guide. So I right clicked on a MOV file and manually opened in in Quicktime this skips the content guide and opened the file without a crash.
However the video area was blank and the controls were badly glitched and unusable. I could however jump through chapters in the video. Next I opened the Quicktime Player prefs and turned off the Content Guide. This allows QT to open without crashing.
Next using Quicktime Prefs I turned off DirectDraw and used Safe only GDI mode. Now after closing QT and restarting it I get the video playing.
All with stock WINE and no patches. The player interface remains glitched but playback works. Full screen is extremely choppy and crashes when trying to close.
QuickTime uninstall solution

I found that the QuickTime uninstaller failed to uninstall QuickTime, but merely reinstalled it, as one of the above bugs suggests.
I went to Apple's website, downloaded QuickTimeInstaller.exe and extracted the two .msi files out of it (file-roller/"Archive Manager" does a good job of this). I then ran 'wine msiexec /x QuickTime.msi' to remove QuickTime and 'wine msiexec /x AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi' to remove the Software Update utility. Both of these commands seemed to remove the items successfully, although they did fail to remove the GNOME menu entries for the respective applications.
Bonjour left no uninstaller and there was no msi for it inside the QuickTime installer, so to remove Bonjour, I had to go to Apple's website, download Bonjour's own setup file, BonjourSetup.exe, extract the msi file, and run 'wine msiexec /x' on it, which succeeded in removing it.
