           Summary: Wine wants to allocate all the memory
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.22.
          Platform: PC-x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-kernel
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: lukas at ksp.sk

I have this line in /etc/security/limits.conf:
"@users  hard  as  600000"

Every user can allocate only 600MB of memory (of about 1GB). With this option 
set, wine exits with:
"wine: failed to initialize: /usr/lib/wine/ntdll.dll.so: failed to map segment 
from shared object: Cannot allocate memory"

When I delete the line from /etc/security/limits.conf or set the limit to 
higher value, everything works fine.
