Your assumption is correct. Apart from simple programs like Solitaire or Notepad everything I ever tried requires wine-kthread. I'm mostly using it for Diablo 2 and Starcraft. This is the output if I use wine (pthread).

For me a core dump is not much better than an infinite loop. It only saves me the time to run kill.

Anyway, thanks for your interest.
