Wine Temp Files?

I have wine installed but it is eating alot of space in several locations:
-> /home/[user]/usr/lib/wine 182 MB
-> /usr/local/lib/wine 189 MB
-> /usr/lib/wine 182 MB
Are these files in these locations just temp files left over from when I ran windows applications in wine? Can they be deleted, or are they needed for wine to run?

It depends on how you installed wine...
I'm pretty sure you can safely delete both /usr/lib/wine and ~/usr/lib/wine. If youre getting problems after this, delete all the dirs, then install wine all over again. Just be sure not to delete the ~/.wine dir as this dir contain the files and programs installed by wine.
