Here is a bug report on bugs.winehq.org:
This issue is experienced on Ubuntu Lucid, Ubuntu Maverick, Gentoo amd64 only with Intel graphics driver (using latest available in PPA, version 2.14. Issue still exists with compoziting disabled.
Affected chipsets: Intel Mobile GM965/GL960, 82865G. Maybe some others, I can't test that.
Sorry for not providing any dumps, I no longer have access to the machine with Intel graphics card. But I'll try to provide it later.
The issue is that under certain circumstances some words get highlighted not with blue, but with black, making these unreadable, also some elements in GUI are also black. The issue with highligh appears only if two highlighted words are on the same line. I think it is related to some kind of optimizations that play in such situations.
I am experiencing this bug. According to lspci I have the following intel chipset:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Arrandale Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

There's an update to winehq bug. As it came out, it is reproducible with a built-in wine utility, winecfg. Just run it and switch to graphics tab. You'll see all black slider there.

uxa: Simplify Composite solid acceleration for spans by only clipping once.
Unlike the previous commit removing this style of code, the code in
this one was originally wrong, and would fail to clip in the second
pass of clipping when y was > pbox->y2.

Btw, all of these bugs were fixed in sna.
Fixed in sna, reverted in uxa:

uxa: Remove the attempt to use the 3D pipeline for core rendering
The attempt was still ridden with bugs, such as
A fresh approach was taken with SNA, but in the mean time before that
can be enabled downstream, restore correct behaviour.
