Wine slow to startup

I'm running Wine 0.9.10 on Kubuntu 5.1 and when I try to run winecfg or a windows program such as dvdshrink it takes several minutes before anything happens. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

I ran strace on the wine process while it was sitting there doing nothing for 4 minutes and, for what it's worth, it's stuck on this call:
connect(11, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(631), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16 <unfinished ...>
i have no idea what that could be doing though

you could try an update of wine. 0.9.11 cam out recently. Sometimes updates will fix some configuration error you have.
