While I think this is a great idea for people who use their apps every 
day, it still depends on having a bunch of testers.

It would be trivial to have your script killall wine after 5 minutes of 
it sitting there waiting for you. My main concern was that a seg fault 
doesn't necessarily mean that the app will terminate. Also, this only 
checks that apps can launch, not that they are functional in any way. A 
combination of both approaches would be helpful.
