ubuntu 10.04 using wine 1.3.31 from the wine ppa, downloaded winhttp.dll from a site via google, copied to the system32 folder, created an override, and still crashes. remove spotify from facebook and no crash.

OS: Ubuntu 11.04 (wine 1.3.28)
I installed PlayOnLinux, installed Spotify using that, did the winhttp.dll hack. This made the initial Facebook-related crash go away, but had an issue of the entire program dying about twice an hour, sometimes during playback and sometimes while paused.
To fix that, I used PlayOnLinux to install wine version 1.1.27 and use it just for the Spotify setup, and configured it to use ALSA sound (on a system which uses the default pulseaudio setup). This gets me to the point where the program no longer crashes randomly. It shows a crash dialog when starting, but continues just fine once that is closed. Notification of songs to Facebook does not work, but most else does.
