The Peer is designed to sit in the background, so some integration flaws aren't a real worry.

Thanks to KÃ¥re Baastrup for the help.
At time of writing Wine fails to set process priority. To work around this you can use the ionice and nice programs which are available for most Linux distributions (and others).
ionice -c3 nice -n19 wine "c:\\Program Files\\Gomez\\GomezPEER\\bin\\GomezPEER.exe"
or better still:
chrt -i 0 wine "c:\\Program Files\\Gomez\\GomezPEER\\bin\\GomezPEER.exe"
The background process can use 100% CPU so if you do not do this you may notice a system slowdown.
Under Windows, GomezPEER.exe runs at normal priority and java.exe runs at idle priority. You can use a script to do this if you wish but the above should be adequate.
Note: The above will also start the wineserver in idle priority, so all other Wine applications will also be given the lowest priority. If you run other Windows processes you will want to run the above last. The following shell script should offer a clue as to how to work around this problem should you later need to start a new Windows application with normal priority.
