As far as I can tell, everything works great as long as MouseWarpOverride is set to force and intro videos are replaced with empty files.
What does not
Obviously PunkBuster, but it's not a big deal since EvenBalance dropped support awhile back and about 90% of servers that I saw don't use it.
What was not tested
I don't think I missed anything of importance.
I had a problem with very slow movement like really bad lag and the mouse jumping between very low and very high sensitivity, making it extremely difficult to play. I changed some ini settings and the problem was gone, but haven't been able to reproduce and not even sure if the ini settings were causing it since I didn't run the game immediately before making the changes.

In recent enough Wine (>=1.1.3) Vitaliy Margolen has imported the mouse warp workaround. To use it add this registry key:
MouseWarpOverride = force
Note: if your mouse sensitivity is high enough the cursor might jump out of the game window if you move your mouse fast, you could prevent this by using slower speed in X and higher sensitivity in game but you'll lose some accuracy
Intro movies cannot be skipped. Only way to do it is to remove the intro movies permanently or to replace them with empty files (might produce better results). The correspondig files are Videos/Logos.bik and Videos/int/RS_Intro.bik. If you happen to have crashing problems with the intro videos, this also gets you into the menu.
Multiplayer works flawlessly.
Everything above was tested with Wine 1.1.3.
Punkbuster might or might not work. You will be kicked out of Punkbuster enabled servers without patching and can be marked as a cheater, so be careful!
See bug 9685 for more details and patches.
If the framerate is not smooth, try both of these:
wine reg add 'HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D' /v UseGLSL /d disabled
