How often is "repeatedly"? I found that when trying to run one game
(HoI), I was getting around 5 error messages per second, and it was the
volume of error logging that was causing the performance problem.
Running wine with:
  wine {appname} >/dev/null 2>&1
caused the performance issues to go away, just by supressing the
excessing generation of error messages.
