I can't give logs or traces, but I can give you an anecdote - a year
or so ago, I used Google's original Linux port of Picasa (the one
which comes with its own custom Wine) on Ubuntu Edgy a *lot*. And I
would see explorer.exe using absolutely as much CPU as it could. I
noticed this because my laptop kept heating up to the point where it
shut itself down ...
(Now I run the Windows version of Picasa under stock Wine ;-) )
The symptoms sound similar, I'm wondering if it's related.
Oh, and explorer.exe's VM footprint was listed in top (which I know is
not entirely accurate) as about a gigabyte.
