Given the problem only occurs only in experimental, it is not possible
to do anything on the glibc side.

Adding Break: wine (<= 1.1.22-2) (assuming it will be fixed in this 
version) means wine in unstable won't be installable in unstable 

I think we should ignore the problem if he don't hit unstable, or
alternatively a fixed version of wine should be uploaded immediately
to *unstable*.
