[pkg-wine-party] Bug#745346: Please support an environment variable to disable the lingering wineserver

Source: wine
Version: 1.6.2-8
Severity: wishlist

Normally, when wine runs a Windows program, and the Windows program
exits, wineserver persists for a couple of seconds to improve the
performance of subsequent programs.  When running a testsuite that
waits for all child processes to exit, this delays each test completion
for a couple of seconds.  Thus, I'd like to have an environment variable
that tells wineserver to exit the instant the Windows program does.

(I can work around this by running a persistent wineserver and killing
it afterward, but that introduces more complexity and fragility into the
test suite.)
