I've been regularly building Wine from the git sources ever since I
started working with it. The odd part is that this had always worked
fine until last week (can't recall the exact day it started freezing,

Yesterday I got something, though: I tried running wineprefixcreate
via ssh, and it went through and created the prefix successfully. But
when I ran it locally and then ran top via ssh, I saw wineprefixcreate
was using 95%+ CPU and I had to remotely kill it.

I've seen similar complaints in some forums, many of them related to a
certain Via UniChrome graphics card, one of which I happen to have in
my machine. Could that be a cause?

Ah, yes, my operating system is Ubuntu 7.10.
