Windows XP Thinkwell screenshot. Correct rendering.

For school, I use a program called thinkwell. This program seem to work great
under wine, except for a rendering glitch.

I have attached three images to show the problem.

The first shows what it is supposed to look like. This screenshot was taken
under WinXP. The part I have circled in red is a quicktime video. The remaining
window is a shockwave animation.

The problem is that under wine, when the quicktime video redraws (which happens
about 25 time per second), the shockwave animation becomes black. The shockwave
animation redraws every couple of seconds at which time the screen flickers.
This happens under kwin, metacity, and compiz.

The second screenshot shows what happens under wine.

The third screenshot shows a glitch under compiz that allows you to see what
happens. When I drag the window, the window and the shockwave animation move
and continue to update. But the quicktime video remains in its place until I
release the window titlebar.

What I see as the bug and the fix is that the z order of the animations is bad.
The shockwave should always be above the quicktime movie, even when quicktime
