I have also seen a problem with winecfg freezing the whole box the
last two days, 20051226 snapshot.  Outsite ping won't even work.  My
distro is slackware-current here.  I think it may be related to audio
because I removed my user from the audio group and I have not since
been able to recreate the lockup.  The reason I guessed audio is
because 9 times out of 10 it locks up when clicking the audio tab. 
But it also locks up in or clicking the graphics tab.
