wineboot - Multi-User environment

It seems that if user1 is running a wine app and user2 is running a wine 
app, and user2 wants to perform a wineboot command, wineboot will wait 
till user1 closes out all wine applications.

My observations are based on running winetools as user2 to install 
software while user1 continues to run a wine application.  When it comes 
time to perform a "Windows Reboot", winetools just hangs there waiting 
for the wine processes to terminate.

I think that wineboot should be modified to only attempt to stop 
processes owned by the user calling wineboot.
