regarding IWD2:
It may well be that this exhausts your memory, which in most cases 
brings the machine down to its knee

regarding the simple wine run:
- the ld related errors are strange. I'm using ld-2.3.4 which doesn't 
show them. Likely a bug in ld-2.3.5 :-/
- the last errors are expected from vg 3.10 (I have the fixes if someone 
is interested, both for VG and some enhancements to wine)

and BTW, don't expect yet SEH in wine to work with vg
