I applied the patch but no change. The problem still occurs. Reminds me. Your
patch is mostly (or even entirely) for the Direct Draw stuff. But I have that
disabled here because the wine builtin support doesn't work too well for me.
With the builtin support enabled, the screen goes black as soon as I fire up
for example Quicktime. It looks like something draws black over the whole
screen because as soon as you cause X to redraw parts of the screen (by moving
a window for example), you can clean up everything and use the window like a
eraser. :-) Also the performance is really poor. :(
Things work a bit better if I copy the necessary Direct stuff over to my fake
windows and let wine use native support. The black screen and such won't
happen. Yet I get the best performance if I disable direct draw entirely. And
if I open a window during quicktime playback (page setup for example) so that
both the "time slider" and the "audio analyzer bars" stop updating, I get the
same great performance like with a real windows system. Strange...
Are you using native or builtin direct draw? Does it work on your system? If
it does, I should start wondering what's wrong with my setup here I guess.

That's great. Having wine use XV will be a really great advantage. If you do
need a tester or something like that, let me know I'll happily volunteer. :-)
