Hello, I am new to this forum - have searched both ubuntuforums and winehq
forums but haven't found too much related with my problem. Not quite sure this
is wine related or xorg.conf related, please advise.

The issue is appearing for any recent versions of wine from 0.9.45 to 0.9.54
(all tested), on ubuntu 6.06, 7.04 and 7.10. My MS Windows app is developed in
Borland Delphi and (except the two noted below) works 100% under wine.

First problem noticed so far is related to clicking an icon - this should
behave differently when clicked or Shift-clicked (using left mouse button). In
Ubuntu+Wine, Shift-clicking is always ignored (produces same result like when
the icon is simply clicked) as opposed to mS Windows where it works as
expected, displaying different reports when clicked vs. shift-clicked.

Please note that Shift key works fine *by itself* in same app under wine (that
is, switches between lowercase and uppercase when writing in a text box) and of
course in native Ubuntu screens. It seems is only ignored when combined with a
mouse click in my application when run in wine.

Second problem noticed is not being able to scroll with mouse wheel in same app
run in wine. The mouse is fully recognized in Ubuntu (scroll wheel works fine
"outside" wine in native Ubuntu apps). Except wine, there is no other changes
in default install of Ubuntu so I cannot blame certain custom settings.

First have tried with various Ubuntu versions installed from scratch and
default wine configuration, then adjusted winecfg to simulate Win95, Win98,
Win2000 and Win2003 - no results. Also tried to check/uncheck "Allow window
manager to control windows" - no results.

As far as I found in forums so far, there were mainly two fixes suggested (for
gamers not having access to Shift/Ctrl/Alt + click): some were suggesting
changing Movement Key in System/Preferences/Window from Alt to Super, while
others suggested changing Window Settings in winecfg (Allow/Disallow the window
manager to control the windows). Nothing works in my case.

Any help or pointers to other similar issues is appreciated. Thank you.
