Installing the game, patching, launching the game from the directory. Sound worked flawlessly. Runs as fast as on win32 at 1280x1024 (full detail) using a nvidia 7600gt with latest nvidia-drivers. also tested some private servers (e.g. rebirthro works fine here).
What does not
Dynamic text boxes: as you can see in many screenshots, you can see through the text to the background. Items window: sometimes there will be random numbers in the end, such as a 3 already being filled on each slot (especially when using custom interface skins)
What was not tested
some client version seem to complain about a missing mfc42.dll. solution: try to get mfc42.dll from a windows xp installation and copy it to .wine/drive_c/windows/system32. then add a dll override (native only) for mfc42 using winecfg.

You need vcrun2008 for gameplay work. If you execute this without vcrun2008, your instalation can be corrupt (the cause is unknow).
(This does not apply to openpatcher).
Install wine gecko package (the package name varies according with your distribution). you can optionally install ie6 with winetricks instead of wine gecko package. Both work well.
Download this file and add to wine registry:
$ regedit boost.reg
(The performance gain is high.)
