BioEdit works very well using wine 1.2.1.
The 1.3.x series has some bugs in it, so it is recommended to use the stable version for a hassle free use.
Also keep in mind that in some computers (I cannot find a pattern) the "alternate" BioEdit.exe available on the official website is required to be able to run BioEdit. This is not a wine bug as it also happens on computers with Windows.
