With pixel shaders disabled everything seems to work in windowed mode.
I can login, choose a character and enter the game.
The framerate hovers between 2 and 5 fps though, on lowest settings.
What does not
X hangs if game is run with pixel shaders enabled. Trips an assertion in the graphics driver.
The graphics driver dies when the window is resized.
Switching to fullscreen mode gives a static screen, while the game continues to play music.
What was not tested
Hardware: HP 2510p laptop with Intel X3100 integrated graphics | Graphics driver: intel 2.3.1 | Pixel shaders can be disabled either with the -noshaders argument or in winecfg. The game runs either way. | Seems to be mostly driver issues.

NOTE: Guild Wars usually doesn't require any special settings to get working. The advice listed below is only for those who require help installing, running, or troubleshooting Guild Wars.
Simply use the installer found at guildwars.com. Unzip the installer and run it using Wine:
WINEDEBUG=-all wine "C:\Program Files\Guild Wars\Gw.exe"
WINEDEBUG=-all will stop the flood of fixme messages generated from normal use. If you require debugging, omit this option.
If you are having graphics issues, use regedit to try some registry keys:
Appending these flags to the run command may help you:

This is not a Wine bug, it is a fglrx bug. Please do not open a bug for this, it will just be closed.
