ubuntu wine fglrx "API ERROR"

After ATI driver update you cannot use WINE. In the console you can see a lot of "API ERROR"s. To solve it you have to replace libGL library for older version. Please download it from this location and copy it to /usr/lib. If you do not know how to paste file in restricted area, you can do it as root: open console (terminal), and enter command:

sudo cp /dir_where_the_file_was_downloaded/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib

It works immediately.
You may want to copy the file to safe name /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2.good, and after the next ATI drivers update use your own copy.
