[Wine] PortableApps fail to close properly on mounted USB drive

Hello -

I am new to this forum, so forgive me if this has been asked and 
answered already... I am running openSuSE 11.2 with Wine-1.1.42 and use 
the PortableApps off of a USB Passport disk drive. I am noticing that 
when I try to close applications such as Firefox or Thunderbird, also 
running under Wine, that the processes for Thunderbird, Firefox, 
PortableApps, and Wineserver are leaving files open and not properly 
closing them (Observed with lsof /media/My\ Passport after closing the 
apps) This in turn prevents the disk drive from being able to be 
dismounted and forces me to kill the associated processes. Of course 
that is dangerous and can lead to file corruption. Has anyone else 
observed this and is there a fix for it?

I have already talked to people on the PortableApps forum and they are 
finger pointing to wine as the problem...
