In my very limited understanding of this, the wineserver is playing the 
part of the Windows "server", which is very vaguely like the Linux 
kernel. A whole lot of things go through the server; I think all 
graphics calls go through the server, for example.

Yes, the segmentation fault message looks like a plain Linux 
segmentation fault message. In Wine, I would expect something about an 
unhandled exception.

If you never triggered a FIXME, then I guess the crash occurred before 
you got to any FIXME in the code.
