wine segfaulting

What kernel version/distro are you using? What about make test.

I had similar strange behavior with 2.6.18 (debian/unstable 
linux-image-2.6.18-1-686): wine segfaults in multiple situations. The 
strangest was: make test failed/segfaulted in ntdll, but running the 
test manually with runtest worked !?! The rest of the system was perfect 
With 2.6.17 everything works fine.

I found some reports on the net having similar problems with 2.6.18. It 
looks like a memory layout issue.
