Actually, the both wine's package in debian repository don't work correctly
when you install the 32-bits and 64-bits package. The installation is fine
but when you launch wine64, a 64-bits prefix is create but it's impossible
to launch and install a 32-bits applications (like explained here
http://wiki.winehq.org/Wine64 section "Building a shared WoW64 setup")

I already explain to Michael how it's possible to use this shared WoW64
setup. To use it, a user needs libwine package amd64 + i386 and wine
package amd64.
libwine package amd 64 *MUST* to contain all librairies present in
"/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu" +
