Wine is only a user application (similar to Firefox/xpdf or other),
and a user-application can never freeze the whole system.

Special to Wine is, that it use the OpenGL/X-Driver much more
than all other apps. That make bugs in the Driver visible.

Which Driver and which version?

Please specify the the Versions, you tested (newest in the Details above)

Sounds like a Driver-Bug

You can restart X with "ctrl - alt - Backspace"
You can switch to a console with "ctrl - alt - F1"
