first off I like you signature line :)
Secondly, I run both TheJournal and my genealogy program off my Mac using parallels and have had no problems at all with them. Don't know if that helps with wine, but thought I'd mention it.

That error most often happens if you have automatic backup or antivirus
software running. The other software is "locking" The Journal's file(s)
to copy/scan the file(s).
If possible, schedule the other software to do its check when you're not
using The Journal.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

The journal goes blank and 'crashes' I have to restart it. The files appear to back up okay (hopefully) and everything appears okay when restarting. I tried reinstalling the journal yet gives the same issue, even without loading old data, ie. a fresh journal database.
