I get the same problem, but only since I started using codeweavers wine, it 
seems less prone to it happeneing if you run as root, but if it crashes as root 
(something that happens quite a bit to me running diablo, can't seem to work it 
out, there's NOTHING after it crashes, can't even ssh in the system is DEAD) 
which isn't nice cos as root it killes everything, although I can play as non 
root user (unlike wine)
