you are kidding, right? so if you want to encode an ogg file, render a
image, compile software or play a game you would rather wait longer than
having CPUs utilized? 

if there is a bug with WINE that does actually something like `while
true; do done` then this is _a bug_ and you should report it - but your
hardware starting to smoke from an app, that takes up all your CPU
cylces this is a problem with your hardware. 

if you dont like WINE to use all CPU, if needed, then have a look in the
possibilities of your operating system to manage resources and throttle
WINE down.
