On that same page you linked to someone (Vndecid) had a similar issue. They said: "Open regedit HKEY_current_user->Software->wine->Direct3D and change Directdrawrender that have the opengl value for gdi" – reverendj1 Aug 16 '12 at 20:07
Fire up a terminal, and use the following command: wine regedit, then navigate through to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Wine -> Direct3D and there should a key called Directdrawrender. Tell me what that is, then I may be able to decipher the rest of what to do. He/she did write it kind of weird... – reverendj1 Aug 16 '12 at 20:22

I updated wine to 1.5.5 and this seems to have fixed the problem.
