I have the same problem, fortunately there is a work around.

Install uTorrent 1.8.1 (any version above 1.8.1 seems to get stuck on the install)

Now copy application data in to the program directory. I think this is called compact mode.

Run this in terminal:

mv $HOME/.wine/drive_c/users/$USER/Application\ Data/uTorrent/* $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/uTorrent/

Now you can upgrade by downloading a new uTorrent and copy it to /home/$USER/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/uTorrent/

Rename the 1.8.1 uTorrent.exe to uTorrent.old.exe (best keep it in case you need to revert)

Rename the downloaded utorrent.exe to uTorrent.exe and you're done.

While you're in this folder download a good ipfilter.dat http://blocklistpro.com/download-center/ip-filters/

Place dat file in the Program Files/uTorrent/ folder and in uTorrent peers tab right click and reload dat file. Log tab will confirm it's loaded.
