Can not kill Wine! Help!

We are running Lotus Notes R6 and over time we see several wine-preloaders running. I have tried 'killall wine-preloader -s KILL' even kill -9 <PID> and still the dam things will not go away.

Is there any other way to kill them without having to reboot the systems?

Have you tried
killall wineserver
to stop it?

Yep, that just kills the wineserver. There are 5+ wine-preloaders running and those we can not kill. I notice it is running something with pthread. I can give you more ps -ef or pstree output if you need it.
