[Wine] Wine program resource usage question

I run a stock analysis program with Wine. What it does is basically display the chart of a chosen stock. Above the chart, there is a menu bar that let you have some control like change time frame, or go back, etc. There also a right-click popup menu that let you have some other controls. What is strange is that when switching the mouse from the chart to the GUI, or vice versa, there is a huge memory and CPU usage upsurge. Memory surges from normally 40% total on the system to about 80% on my 4GB RAM machine. And one CPU (of the due core) usage surges to 100%. This lasts for about 7-8 seconds, as if something huge is being swapped in and out. After that it is back to normal. Of course, during upsurge time the program doesn't really respond.
The question is why a switch of focus between graphics and GUI causes such a big resource hog. What can I do to find out more about what if going on or solve the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
