Arrgh! Wine: "16-bit support missing".

In ubuntu hardy heron really annoying bug is present, due to security reasons by default support of 16-bit applications was disabled. As the result, if i wanted to install some of good old software i am used to i was getting an error:

preloader: Warning: failed to reserve range 00000000-60000000
winevdm: unable to exec '--app-name': 16-bit support missing

On ubuntuforums i found solution which actually works:

sudo sysctl -w vm.mmap_min_addr=0
