Wine couldn't start for non-root users

I installed wine by yum. The version is Wine 0.9.24. I successfully run the default programs, such as WineMine, Wine File and Wine Configuration (winecfg) as root. But whenever I logged in as a non-root user, it always fails to lanuch any program using wine. Also, it is not able to create .wine on non-root user, wine create only .wine-0NZ2bo, .wine-9bniQF and .wine-kALi24 etc..

Any idea? Where to view the wine log?

Having Bugs since 0.9.23?!

I tested also the version 0.9.23 and the result is the same. Afterward, I uninstalled Wine 0.9.24 and restore to Wine 0.9.14. Wine can launch programs again. Don't know if there are bugs since the version 0.9.23 or not.

I got the old version from here.

I'm having the same problem in Fedora Core 6. My wine version is 0.9.32.
On root everything works but with my non-root account this is the message that appears:

[javierl@Brennan2-PC ~]$ winecfg
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x7bba91a0 "x11drv_main.c: X11DRV_C
ritSection" wait timed out in thread 000c, blocked by 000b, retrying (60 sec)
wine: Critical section 7bba91a0 wait failed at address 0x602b44b0 (thread 000c),
starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: wait failed on critical section 0x7bba91a0 thread_data_tls_

Any help?
