Steam on Wine, cannot login,"Steam is having trouble connecting to the Steam servers"

Trying to run Steam on Wine on Arch Linux 64. The login screen loads up, but when I try to login I get

"Steam is having trouble connecting to the Steam servers"
with the option to either retry connection or cancel.

From the command line I get
wine "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe"
fixme:process:SetProcessShutdownParameters (00000100, 00000000): partial stub.
CellID: Fetching server list from CSDS. . .
fixme:urlmon:CoInternetSetFeatureEnabled 5, 0x00000002, 1, stub
fixme:urlmon:CoInternetSetFeatureEnabled 10, 0x00000002, 1, stub
fixme:threadpool:RtlQueueWorkItem Flags 0x4 not supported

fixme:mixer:ALSA_MixerInit No master control found on Brooktree Bt878, disabling mixer
err:module:load_builtin_dll failed to load .so lib for builtin L"winemp3.acm": wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
CellID: CSDS returned 0 servers.
Shutting down. . .
fixme:winmm:MMDRV_Exit Closing while ll-driver open
fixme:winmm:MMDRV_Exit Closing while ll-driver open
[tw296@treno ~]$
the "returned 0 servers" bit seems like it's probably what's wrong.

Steam's own troubleshooting advice is useless.

It 'worked before', I'd downloaded Portal, but now I can't play it :-(

Anyone know what's going wrong here?
