Presumably this is a policy defined by Wine and not by winelib apps,
correct? If so, is there any documentation I could read?

If so, then one of my suspicions about this specific problem was the
possibility that it isn't really Wine that's crashing, or even the
specific VST that's crashing, but more that it's jack_fst that's
crashing. Possibly because it's talking to Wine (or the wine server)

One thought is the reason I cannot catch the failure using the FIXME
method I tried last night is because the segfault isn't in wine at

Wine is being called by jack_fst, so when jack_fst dies I assume that
Wine is cleaned up by Linux since it's a subprocess? If Wine had
segfaulted wouldn't jack_fst still be in memory, which I don't see?
