WoW under Wine in Arch

Hello everyone

I'm at a loss here. Last night I installed Archlinux after a few hiccups. I installed my 3d-drivers to my Ati Radeon Mobility HD2600 with the Catalyst drivers, where
glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: yes
Glxgears output:
# glxgears
24327 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4865.204 FPS
24758 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4951.503 FPS
24878 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4975.511 FPS
24740 frames in 5.0 seconds = 4947.859 FPS
Haven't gotten my sound to work yet though.
Here's the problem:

When I enter WoW via wine (v. 1.1.13)
wine Wow.exe -opengl
I get to see the cinematics in normal speed, but when I press enter to skip them (or disable them in the config file), the game just hangs there, giving me a black screen. I can sometimes quit the screen by pressing Escape, which quits it, and sometimes I get booted out with a fatal-exception error. No idea how to duplicate that error though. If I run the game without the -opengl flag, I get to the login-screen, which is extremely choppy, and where I can't click the Accept button for the EULA.
In the console, the game keeps repeating the same message.

Here is the entire log after a few minutes of running the game:

# wine Wow.exe -opengl

fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x39d33c,0x00000000), stub!
By the way, I'm running Archlinux 64 bit, my specs are as follows:
AMD Turion64 x2, 2 GB RAM, with an ATI Radeon Mobility HD2600 card, 256 mb.

Hope this is enough info, I rarely seek online help with computer issues (only other time was yesterday about a boot-issue which ofcourse fixed itself the moment I posted >.>), but I'm really out of ideas as to what I can do.
