      This is just the classic "let's cater to purity instead of practical performance" issue wine development has (or wine-staging), unfortunately. Given it's by Zebediah Figura it's no surprise.
      What's wrong with Zebediah? Isn't esync from him and yet always refused upstream so not that pure I'm guessing?

          I am sure something had an improvement or was supposed to have an improvement, but it is in staging so it can be tested in a larger arena where these kinds of bugs can be found. Hence the ~800 patches on top of standard wine.
          I find, at least with wine, the whole idea of beta and production to be not much of a thing. Sure there could be something more unstable, but as a whole, many things are broken, crash, and won't run. Regressions will probably happen in all of them as well. Use whatever works is my motto for wine.

          Probably no one should really be concerned.
