64-bit Wine in Fedora 16

I'm not sure how wine was compiled and packaged in Fedora 16 but 64-bit package gave me nothing but trouble. This was the most common issue, popping up as soon as I'd try to create a 32-bit prefix:

wine: WINEARCH set to win32 but '.wine' is a 64-bit installation

After I uninstalled the x86_64 version of wine and installed i686 all the nuisances went away.

Update: See this post for the proper way to create a 32-bit prefix.
