Everything seems to be in working order, with some (rare) crashes and (uncommon) sound glitches.
What does not
What was not tested
While the game itself runs smoothly (on an intel Macbook), there are slight issues with sound dropping out or the game crashing. This *could* be resolved with the patches, but I've so far been unable to install these.

After you installed the game you may get a performance boost if you use the latest version of DirectX 9.
The easiest way to do so, is using winetricks:

If you have problems with completely corrupted textures the problem might be that your systems lacks a library that is used for texture compression in Dawn of War.
Under Debian based system install the package "libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0" and try again.
