Disable wine warning messages on startup

Whenever I start PlayOnLinux 4.2.2, I get this message:

PlayOnLinux cannot find wine (from Wine)

You should install it to use PlayOnLinux

Now before you refer me to the FAQ, I'm using WINE from the POL versions manager and it works for me (as far as WINE goes). 

I could install a separate WINE version outside POL, but I don't want to deal with e.g winemenu workarounds or stuff like that if there's otherwise no impact on functionality. 

Note this only happens when starting POL directly, not when starting the WINE apps themselves. So it's a really minor issue, but I'm curious still.

I'm running Debian Wheezy with MATE.

I get the same thing, It's very annoying.

Having Wine installed system-wide (32bit, preferably) is currently a dependency of PlayOnLinux itself.
