Brilliant.  I grabbed their tarball of wine for 1.7.8 and it worked nicely.

I know the spec files and such are in a repository, but I still wonder
why they don't keep an archive of the actual rpms.  Because sometimes
regressions do happen, and this would be the quickest way to roll back
the package.  Granted this is the first time I've ever needed to do a
rollback like this.  Guess if I'd snapshotted my btrfs filesystem I
could have rolled back.  In the case of wine, it seems like probably
having a dedicated version of wine tucked away somewhere, just for this
one app, is probably the best bet anyway.  I'd report this as a
regression to the wine folks, but tracking it down over 10 releases
would be a bigger job than I want to tackle.  I might make a note on the
app db though.
