I also have the system monitor applet on my top bar (gnome) and as soon as IE6 starts sysmon shows CPU time at 100%. My strace -p looked similar to yours but much longer. I also noticed that all processes remained active even though I closed IE. Doing a ps -ef shows the below statuses:

When I installed wine I found that it created a process damon in system services gui that was checked and was running. I did not actually check to see if it had setup to restart on reboot. I believe that in the GUI if the service is cheacked it will be auto started on boot.
