Don't do that! You enabling heap "filler" - functions that fill released heap space with some byte pattern. It SIGNIFICANTLY reduces performance.

If your program still works slower on Wine, you should look at what exactly you doing. And how to optimize it/change it. Some operations will always be slower on Wine because they have to go through or touch wineserver. On windows that would be kernel, on Wine it's a separate single-threaded process.
