Blizzard banning Linux users from Diablo 3

I'm sorry to bring this back up, but I wanted it to be more visible.  I already posted here:

For any of you that are wondering, yes this is real, it's true, and it's still a problem.  Here's what my setup looks like:

Clevo P180HM Laptop
ATI Radeon 6990m (Running version 9.00.11 drivers)
Kubuntu 12.10 64 bit (also played for a couple of days on Kubuntu 12.4)
KDE 4.9.1
Intel Core i7-2670QM
12 GB of ram
128 GB SSD + 500 GB spindle drive
Diablo 3 is installed in a 32bit wine bottle
Wine version is 1.5.5-Diablo3-v3
Installed and managed by PlayOnLinux

I was banned two nights ago, and I *swear* there was no cheating involved.  I know I'm not getting my account back, and that's cool.  As I posted on the other page I had only been playing for a week and a half, and I only paid $10 for the client at Toys R Us...well...Best Buy really, but only because I made them price match it.

The thing is, I want to play this game, and I want to play it in Linux.  I'll go buy another copy if I can be reasonably sure that I won't just get banned again for no reason.

If you'd had a similar experience, or you can help, please post here.
