Question No graphics on Wine/Cedega games (64 bits)

I am having a specific problem with games using Wine and Cedega: no graphics (or very confused ones) only. It is impossible to play anything. For example, Oblivion gets me only a white screen, while Counterstrike loads to display fuzzy letters impossible to read.

I am able to play native Linux games (ex.: Nexuiz) perfectly. Glxinfo says Yes to Direct Rendering and Glxgears gets me around 5900 fps. In short, everything as far as setup goes seems to be going well.

My system:
Debian Testing AMD64 with Unstable Nvidia graphics drivers (nvidia-glx and nvidia-glx-dev both installed). Card is Nvidia 7300 GT

My guess is that there is some incompatibility problem with Windoze games (32 bits) and my 64 bits system. I have tried Google and numerous forums and cannot get to the bottom of this.

Any input is appreciated.
