Adding the WineHQ AppDB link for Linux users who happen to find this forum first. It contains info about issues with the installer, patching and a nice FAQ on problems (such as the ubuntu security fix) that have been worked out.

New issue seems to be refusal to authenticate. Works fine for Windows, but WINE clients are not being allowed past the Authenticating Credentials phase. The last lines of log output before this point indicate that it's reading some DLLs that are downloaded to the Cache directory when attempting to log in:
The files themselves are downloaded the instant the LOGIN button is pushed.
Edit:For clarification, I think the warnings are just WINE's attempts to find native equivalents for the DLL before falling back to it. The gist is that these files are being downloaded and functions inside are being called immediately between the first green checkmark and the (lack of) the second one.

I will confirm this bug. I played for an hour after the "Removed from game" issue was corrected but now cannot log back on. Oddly, mine will either hang at authenticating credentials OR retrieving hero list.
I also second the vote for a sticky!
I'm not expecting too much, but I put in a support ticket. Even if it goes nowhere, at least it will be marked with a resolution of "Linux user, Lost sale", and increment that statistic by one.
Here's what I said in my support request (all 1500 characters of it)...
I have the "Starter" edition of Diablo III. I'm enjoying the game so far (when it works), and want to upgrade to the retail version, except it has been mostly unplayable for me since the evening of June 4th.
