My guess is that he's seeing the same issue that I reported a few weeks
ago with Crossover plugin. That report generated a fairly long thread
and a lot of patches and testing, but little actual progress. Basically
wine seems to have multiple threads and a client/server architecture and
seems constantly spin on a pipe passing info back and forth to each
other. It seems one thread gets all the attention and starves the
others although the others are critical for the main process to actually
make progress.

I've been wanting to do some testing with your patches so I'll give them
a spin tonight and see how this acts.

Later,
Tom
