Alarming number of users getting hardlocks with Wine

Reading the Ubuntu forums, I've noticed quite a few reports from users
complaining about Wine deadlocking their system - keyboard unresponsive,
with no solution but to restart the entire computer.
Sometimes users report this problem after running ANY Wine process -
I'm not sure what's causing the issue. At first I thought it was a
hardware thing (perhaps ATI's infamously terribly drivers), but would
that still prevent winecfg from working? Wine is a user-level process,
it shouldn't be able to cause a hardlock under any circumstances, right?
Anyone else seen these kinds of reports?
