I've tested out the basic 1.0.1 version of Wine on my Kubuntu and OpenSuSe installation, wine loads MUSH just fine and runs my system without a problem as long as Windows 98 is selected as the emulation mode.

Earlier today I tried upgrading my distro's wine installation to the latest betas from WineHQ repos, after the install MUSH loaded just fine but when I came to load my world file I got errors in a number of .lua files necessary for my system to work and scripting was disabled across MUSH. Upon reverting back to the older version of wine, scripting once again worked fine.

There is a definite slowdown in Wine over Windows when it comes to highly spammy situations, especially when the system is running a lot of scripts (according to the creator it has 50k plus lines of scripting, I've probably added a few thousand of my own to that too). Anyone know which version of wine runs MUSH the fastest and most stable?

It works with me using Wine-1.0.1, however most of my testing is under Windows, which is where my development environment for MUSHclient is.

Wine 1.0.1 seems to work the best with MUSH so far.

Early today I upgraded to the latest beta, (1.25?) and had issues with it loading python, and my chosen font was NOwhere to be found. I've reverted back to 1.0.1, but am now in the process of getting MUSH to recognize my Python installation again.

Your best bet, is to stay with the stable version of Wine as of now.
