RE: Crashes on Mulitprocessor systems

You're right that this is the most simple solution, but this does require root/admin rights which the others don't (at least on my ubuntu box). It would be better if this kind of preference could be set from wine itself; with windows I believe that you can set the processor affinity for a program, but I've not been able to successfully do this in wine.
