 I have a fix for this bug.
 It seems the problem was that the main wine binary was linked against 
 libpthread and contains no pthread code.  Using gdb I found that it was 
 getting stuck at TESTCANCEL(self) in libpthread before calls to read and 
 write.  The debug messages also reported of stack overruns for the wine and 
 wineboot processes.
 So the solution was not to link the main wine binaries to libpthread.  Wine is 
 still pthreaded as ntdll links against libpthread and I can confirm this 
 through top showing 200% cpu usage for broken windows programs.
 So here is the patch:
 --- loader/     2011-04-08 17:09:51.000000000 +0000
 +++ loader/
 @@ -32,7 +32,7 @@ all: $(MAIN_BINARY) wine-installed $(EXT
  wine-preloader: preloader.o
 This patch was also applied to wine-devel and it would also work (wine-devel 
 has other problems under NetBSD 5.0.1 and I will submit additional bug 
 reports and fixes for them.)
 With the patch applied winecfg starts in about 2 seconds and all features 
 work.  I've tested it with firefox and built-in programs such as notepad and 
 winmine and it works as expected.
