will tell me where to go :-)) )
I use wine 0.9.23-12.1 in Suse 10.1 on my laptop to run Papyrus (a word

I have been very pleased with recent versions of wine as it seems now to
be working almost perfectly for Papyrus :-)
However, I have noticed in these two more recent versions that if I select
"allow the window manager to manage created windows", then I get some
If I open a few document windows, then change the topped window using the
panel at the bottom of the screen, then I can have problems using the
menus on that topped window, and sometimes also the menu shortcuts. So
cntrl/s may not do the save for instance, and also, after using cntrl/o to
call the file selector to open a file, then deciding not to open it, the
topped window may have changed to the window for the last document that
was opened, rather than staying as the one I was using.
If I select the window I want to use from the Papyrus menus, I do not get
the problem. Alternatively, if I choose to "emulate a virtual desktop",
then again I don't get the problem. However, I prefer not to use that as
the minimising of the windows seems to work poorly- strange graphics, and
they overlapo each other.
I don't know if this has only just started with these recent versions, as
it is only now that I have got the laptop, that I have started to use
Papyrus on a daily basis.
Does anyone else have similar problems ?
