I guess this is worthy of a bug report.

> 3. err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection  wait timed out in thread <nr>, blocked by <nr>, retrying (60 sec): this is an annoyance, sometimes a major one; namely, it happens that I terminate an app by pressing ^C; usually, that works just fine, but every now and then app goes into that unterminatable state and not for those 60 sec (which is horribly long anyway), but pretty much indefinitelly; it really shouldn't do that; this requires a taskmgr or wineboot intervention to close it

You shouldn't terminate applications like that. You might catch the
application in the middle of "something", inside some locked section
or similar. There is no way for Wine to fix things afterwards in

This also could be an enhancement bug report.
