           Summary: Fonts get corrupted when switching from one X server ot
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.19
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: fonts
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: fdelente at mail.cpod.fr

I play games in wine in a maybe unusual settings, but very convenient in my
opinion: I start wine in a second X server so that, in case of a major bug in
wine, I can kill it quickly with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace.

I play Warhammer Soulstorm and Neverwinter Nights 2 that way; but when I leave
the game running in the 2nd server, and switch back to the 1st one
(Ctrl-Alt-F1), then come back to the 2nd one, the fonts sometimes get
corrupted: some characters are missing, or are garbled, or are blocky.

IIRC, it happened when I upgraded the X.org server about 1 year ago, but I
can't be sure.
