How to make your machine crash when running Wine

Most of the people here are probably smarter than to fall into this trap 
but I recently had several customers who did.  Most of the time openGL 
just refuses to run but a couple of months ago RH did put out an update 
to some of the X code that did cause the machine to crash with Wine if 
you didn't replace the Nvidia driver.  The customers were running some 
things under Wine that used hardware acceleration.  If they had used 
hardware acceleration outside of Wine the machine would have crashed 
too.  This is not a Wine problem but it is likely to be a source of 
regular complaints.
