I started seeing the same thing after upgrading the port installed on my 
system, but only sometimes.  I haven't determined what's different between 
the times it works and the times it doesn't, but stubborn repetition (with 
slight variations such as running from a "wineconsole wcmd" prompt) seems to 
be a key ingredient.  Interestingly, a program I installed prior to upgrading 
the port (irfanview) has always worked fine, although I've seen the problem 
on most other programs I've tried to run.

I'm interested in tracking this down as well.
