Is wine a debugger?

I am trying to load a security Windows dll that does not run under a 
debugger.  When I load the dll I get a SIGTRAP, and then wine breaks in 
its debugger.

My understanding is that if I run wine as opposed to winedbg I am not 
running under a debugger.  But, if there is a crash or some other 
exception wine will start a debugger.

I sent some memory dumps to the developer of the security dll, and he 
said that it behaves like it was running under a debugger.  He's 
question was something like does wine have an always "on" debugger?

I would appreciate any help.
