This a general question to satisfy my own curiosity and to see if other people are noticing the same things.
One thing I noticed with Windows was that when I ran an application it’s performance would improve somewhat the more I used it. It would become more stable, slightly faster, etc. I attributed this primarily to caching. However, I am also noticing this with applications run using WINE. Applications that I run using WINE will mysteriously become more stable after I have run them several times.
Am I imagining this, or does WINE include some kind of automatic error detection and correction? Does it automatically link libraries that may be missing? Or am I imagining this phenomenon? I ask this because I know that WINE does automatically fix paths to executables it can’t find, and I have noticed this improved behaviour over time more than once.
Primarily what I’ve noticed that after I have run an application several times and there have been stability issues, they will mysteriously fix themselves, without my seeming to have done anything to fix them. Is anyone else noticing this?
