Of course. Running Wine as a normal user cannot reboot the computer, it
seems to trigger a problem that lies somewhere else.

There seems to be a possible candidate: buggy Xlibs. Wine20031212 has,
by experiment, enabled threading in the Xlibs. If you were able to run
the previous wine (from November) but not the latest then there is a
chance that this patch: helps.

Please give it a try.
