thumbnail of controller/keyboard setup screen with broken fonts

Summary: I had hoped some registry entries that native DirectX9 provides but
Wine does not would allow to enter the controller menu, but alas there's more
to it, as the random results a-d) show.

The comparison with Lego Star Wars II (LSWII) taught me the following:
 - LSWII's controller screen is different and handled well.
 - LSWII installs DirectX9 while LSW(I) does not.
 - Starting LSW in the DirectX-enabled WINEPREFIX of LSWII suddenly allowed
   to enter the controller menu! (instead of hanging).
 - The font characters are not drawn in this menu (nor in any other menu)
   with Intel graphics (hmm, I thought I had reported that one, perhaps
   same as bug #18957), so the menu is unusable (see screenshot).
 - LSW uses none of the DirectX libraries as WINEDEBUG=+loaddll proves.
   The difference is all in the registry!
 - Verification: using the system.reg from the DirectX-enabled LSWII install
   with LSW in a Wine-only WINEPREFIX also allowed to
   enter the controller menu.

However, it's not always possible to enter the controller menu:
 a) sometimes it nevertheless hangs and the screen remains dark;
 b) sometimes the upper left logo and white arc are not drawn, only
    the text is and it is red;
 c) sometimes the logo is present. The text boxes are red, sometimes coloured
    -- this is the view I made a screenshot of.
 d) sometimes nothing seems wrong (except for the invisible font).

Furthermore, when the controller (keyboard mapping) screen is entered and the
logo drawn (case c or d), the whole Wine desktop window appears upside down for
approximately one second, then flips back to normal.  The same happens when
exiting the controller screen.  This flipping remembers bug #18615 except that
was MacOS with nVidia. Here I'm on Linux with Intel graphics.

I could not achieve the same results on MacOS with nVidia graphics: it always
hangs there, as before.
Using wine 1.1.31 on Linux, and 1.1.34 on MacOS.
