Probably this is unrelated problem that needs separate bugzilla entry (this bug
is total system freeze on old hardware).

In my experience, there is a lot of general instability with newer nvidia cards
in Linux that seem driver-related. For example, I also get system freeze if I
start X, exit X, start X again. Also, with some driver versions, I've been
having lots of weird crashes and issues in Wine's own 3d testcase suite,
especially when OffscreenRenderingMode=fbo is set (and it's now set by default)
and especially in such usage scenarios that some of those tests use and also
games like Thief happen to use. That problem is specific to moments when video
mode is initialized or reset, like Thief does when you go from game to main
menu, notes or map and back to game. So I would advise trying some other
OffscreenRenderingMode settings (info on tweaking these paramters is here:
http://wiki.winehq.org/UsefulRegistryKeys). Also changing video drivers from
nvidia may do something - they seem to constantly fix and break things there,
after last driver update I think I currently do not get those fbo-related
crashes any more, but I do get some others :D.
