Suddenly wine doesn't work

I've installed Codeweavers wine on my Mdk 9.1 box and have been running one program - a simple tone generator - with no problems, until this morning.
When I run the debug option, it complains of a number of .dlls and a couple of .drv files not being found.
The program runs ok on the dark side - on a hunch I ran system file checker on the win 98 partition and everything seems fine.
The only difference from yesterday - when it did run - is that I updated software via urpmi, no packages were removed.

I'm not using a fake windows in ~/home, but running it right from win_c
Can anyone clue me in as to what the problem might be?

Since I only use wine for one program, it never occurred to me to try another program - suprise! wine does work....
But since the tone generator works in Windoze - why would wine not run it?
Guess I'l try re-installing and see if that helps.
