Here's how I see this playing out:
Disable heap validation (which, FYI, is actually happening inside Cryptic code aka would require Cryptic be willing to send out what is actually a debug build to us/someone)
Get game loaded to some sort of menu.
Have game crash due to heap not functioning as expected.
Now, while I admit it is "possible" that the heap validation code is broken, I doubt it (as if it were, it'd be more than Wine users seeing this issue). I think most likely is that wine memory/heap code doesn't work as Cryptic expected, due to some reason.
