I tried this already, it works well for the file lock. But the windows focus is a problem:

Example: Two users start the app with the same wineprefix and uid (using sudo). Flie locking is fine.

If the first users tries to enter a text and the second user klicks on a window, then the first user looses the window focus and can not type anymore.
