           Summary: Flickering in World of Warcraft when switching desktop
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.41.
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-x11driver
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: le at ting.homeunix.org

When switching desktop away from a full screen World of Warcraft the screen
flickers for up to a second. Switching back to World of Warcraft makes the game
inresponsive for several seconds.

This is a major annoyance for me, and makes the game unplayable since I use
teamspeak and firefox alot during gameplay.

I followed the git regression testing howto and identified the offending patch

After reverting this patch in 0.9.50 the game doesn't freeze anymore when
switching desktops.
