Wow on Wine - Divxdecoder.dll problem

Hey all, first off - some info.

System - Core 2, Nvidia 7400, 2GB ram, running OpenSuse 11.1
WoW installed on both an EXT3 and FAT32 partition, neither working
Wine version - 1.1.18-3.1

Ok, I've spent the last 5 hours trying to find a solution for this on Google, but with no luck :-(

Whenever I go to load WoW using Wine, I get the following error messages -

err:module:attach_process_dlls "DivxDecoder.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\\windows\\d\\World of Warcraft\\Wow.exe" failed, status c0000005

Been banging my head against a wall with this for hours. I've tried removing the DivxDecoder.dll file, as was sucessful for a few people. Also tried installing wow on an EXT3 partion, where i have full read/write/execute perms, also tried running "wine '/windows/d/World of Warcraft/Wow.exe'" sudo'd as root. Oh, and tried a different version of Wine, deleting all config files when I did.

If anyone has any ideas or a solution, I'd be very grateful :-)
