I tried that, too, with this result:
             PID USER      PR  NI  VIRT  RES  SHR S %CPU %MEM    TIME+  COMMAND
l32 w32:     5793 ich       20   0 2598m 8556 6524 S  0.0  0.3   0:00.16 notepad

This table shows the output of top after "rm -rf ~/.wine && wine notepad" on linux 32Bit, 32Bit+pae, 64Bit. The main difference is the VIRT memory. Why is it ~1GB higher on 64Bit systems than on 32Bit systems?

I checked that and it seems there isn't any memory leaked in this case.
