Hmm, I've used Delphi under Wine to compile apps just fine, but I guess
the linkers share no code.

Try attaching to the process using winedbg:

$ winedbg

to get the backtraces of the different threads (there may only be one).

See if any are stuck inside the heap code. If so try running with +heap
and remember to redirect to a file, as the resultant output will be large.

NPTL is detected at runtime now.
