           Summary: "Desktop" configuration variable broken
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-x11driver
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: zarquon at t-online.de

The new, winecfg-based version of the "Desktop" variable in the x11drv section
is broken: it doesn't behave like a full X11 geometry specifier anymore, i.e.
you can only enter stuff like "800x600", but not "800x600-10+79". This
behaviour was also documented as such in older releases (e.g. 20041201):

          (adding a geometry, e.g. <literal>800x600</literal>
        for a such-sized desktop, or
          even <literal>800x600+0+0</literal> to
          automatically position the desktop at the upper-left
          corner of the display). 

The old behaviour was extremely useful to me, doesn't hurt people who don't
want to use it and it shouldn't be hard to reanimate, so please return to
the old semantics ASAP.
