Understood. But there is still a part that Wine can play in running on a
platform and running on a platform properly. In the very least Wine can help
the Xorg developers in finding the root of this problem. If our binaries causes
drawing anomalies then it is also our responsibility to find out why our
binaries are causing this. Google Earth doesn't cause a blacked out screen on
XP, Vista or 7. Vista + 7 runs on a composited environment (like Compiz)
without problems. When Wine tries to run this application on the de facto
composition environment of Linux it creates a blacked out screen.

What I'm getting at is that Wine also has a part to play in this problem.

That is the Compiz bug I've just created.
