Looks like the same issue that Dungeon Siege's installer has. My idea so
far has been to move all of the important stuff in the main wine loader
into libwine (so that the wine loader is just a call into libwine), then
libwine's main routine could somehow munmap the loader. Haven't got around
to doing this yet though.
