You can find more info on Google. The Wine problem affects me. Haven't figured out how to deal with it yet.

This problem is caused by the RedHat network updating the glibc
libraries past the point of compatibility with CrossOver. To revert to
your original glibc configuration, first insert your RedHat 8.0
installation CD #1 and then enter the following commands: 
$ su -
# mount /mnt/cdrom
# rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/glibc*.rpm

If you don't need the upgraded fixes, this *might* solve your problems.
I think NSCD was 'upgraded' at the same time. You might need to downgrade
it also.

A word of caution... the downgrade broke postfix on my machine.

I had to manually change some files and symlinks in 
/var/spool/postfix/lib after the downgrade.  Don't know yet if anything
else took a hit.
