#2, #5, and #13 were all alternative versions of patches for the same
issue for the "Thief" game. It's not surprising that these don't
affect firefox, as all were just meant to help in the case of screen

Actually, that's because Dmitry was using an older version. The patch
actually appiled to head would have also applied to 2.14.3. :)
Anyway, the returning from fullscreen mode bug makes perfect sense,
and I'm pretty sure I know the cause: metacity tries to return the
window to the size it was before it was fullscreened, and it sounds
like it was successful in this case. Remember that the application
resized itself to the size of the screen, then you (wine) noticed that
and decided to send the fullscreen toggle message. Thus, the size the
window had before being fullscreen, happened to be a size equal to the
size of the screen. Since wine has added heuristics for detecting
when an app sets its size to the size of the screen, I think it either
needs to add heuristics for resizing back to normal size, or to just
have the fullscreen toggle message replace the apps' resizing commands
instead of supplementing them.
Hope that helps,
