Though rated as Platinum.

Wine 1.3.27, 
KDE 4.6, 
Xorg 1.10.4

Problems with running The Bat 4.x, 5.x (release number doesn't matter). With time Xorg server starts to consume more and more processor time,  yet the memory and processor usage of The Bat itself remains the same. Closing The Bat restores xorg low process consumption.
If The Bat is run for a few days X-Org would hang. Though the processor consumption isn't high, KDE would freeze and refuse to respond. It's not always possible to stop and reboot KDE, sometimes stopping KDE would result in a system hang. 

Did anyone notice a similar behavior with other Windows apps? Is it possible to protect Xorg from dead locks?
