I'm sorry, but a user mode application must not be able to crash your system.
This is how modern operating systems are defined. No matter what evil thing the
app does, either maliciously or accidentally, the kernel must protect you from
harm. If it does not, the kernel is broken.

Get any good book about operating system that discusses topics like security,
multi-user systems, resource quotas and similar things. They will all confirm
what I said.

Even if Wine is the old application on earth that crashes your system: If the
system crashes, and you are not running Wine as root, it is a bug in your
kernel, not wine.
