Say, how much address space protection is there in Wine?
If a Wine process follows a wild pointer or passes garbage
arguments to a Windows function call, are Wineserver
and the other wine processes protected?

Imagine a user running Word, and also some less reliable
windows program.  When that other program crashes, it shouldn't
take Word with it.

One way to check that kind of protection is with programs like 'crashme':

Has anyone tried running crashme on wine yet?
