I must apologise: After a little more research I found out that this might actually be connected to some older bug, that is already fixed. I didn't know that this exploit tries out more than one way to break the security ;-)

But even given that I don't really change my opinion - I do not have a very special configuration; I think installing wine already sets /proc/sys/vm/mmap_min_addr to zero. So this will actually affect the utter most part of the ubuntu installations and is also caused by an application inside the repository, which is therefor a part of ubuntu.
