           Summary: Wine freezes the whole system -> hardware reset -
                    Warcraft III
           Product: Wine
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: clemensb at gmx.net

Sometimes Warcraft III crashes the whole system - the display freezes, i can
see the last frame of the game... and can do nothing but a hardware reset. I
marked this bug critical cause I think the real big problem isn't that Warcraft
III freezes the system - the terrifying thing is the fact that wine is able to
crashes my whole system, making me unable to do anything but a hardware reset.
It occurs on my ThinkPad R61 with integrated Intel GMA965 X3100 graphic card.

It doesn't matter if its 64 or 32-Bit, i tried several Ubuntu and Archlinux
versions, with different mesa/X/drivers. It occurs in all wine version i've
used so far... maybe on some more often, on some less. It's total random when
it happens - but most of the time when I change from X (Gnome) to Warcraft
(Alt-Tab or things like that) or the other way round.

So I guess the main question is, why is wine able to crashes my system? Why I'm
not able to do something other than a hardware reset? But of course, it's a big
problem too that Warcraft III freezes.

Please ask me anything with wich i can help you.
