..but if you run the script in an ssh session and the script runs the
WINE app I'd expect the script to resume execution every time you exit
from the app. Why doesn't it do that?

I suggest you open a second ssh session in parallel and run diagnostic
tools, e.g. top, in it to see what's going on in your script.
