Why not just take advantage of the *-updates (supported iiRC) or
*-backports (unsupported iiRC) repository infrastructure that already
The packages that require the most frequent updating should be
identified (e.g. the ones you mentioned: Tor, Tremulous, Warsow,
Firefox, Wine, etc.) and then flagged for frequent updates.

Have you tried...
deleting your Wine folder (~/.wine) and starting fresh?
running winecfg and under the "Graphics" tab, checking "Emulate a
virtual desktop"? (I suggest setting its size smaller than your
desktop; e.g. if your monitor runs Ubuntu at 1280x1024, try running
Wine at 1024x786)
