Using Wine 1.1.21, I was able to fix the problem by creating a wine profile for
patcher.exe and telling it to emulate a virtual desktop in the graphics tab.
Then, change the graphics settings in the game so it runs as a full screen at
the same resolution as your emulated desktop does.

After doing that, I was able to run it as a "window" and still minimize it.
This is really more of a workaround than a fix, though--something is still
wrong with the way it handles the toolbars, but at least this way you can play
it and minimize it if need be. The issue with it shoving the panels into the
corners is also present and will occur if you switch desktops, as well. I
assume it has something to do with the way it handles coordinates for
positioning in the game, and wine isn't feeding it something right on restore,
so giving it a defined virtual desktop resolves that by fixing the position

As a side note, this method makes running Perfect World in a window better in
Linux than in Windows, because it won't freeze the graphics when it loses
