Wylda, can you detail your winecfg window manager settings and what your window
manager is (e.g. metacity in Gnome in Ubuntu x.y)?
Do you use a virtual desktop or not?

I don't believe this bug much depends on the graphics hardware. It looks like a
window management issue, with the app's main window/screen repeatedly pushed in
front. As a result, the rename dialog is only shown intermittently.
The same happens to other dialogs in this app.

I'm using Ubuntu Intrepid with Gnome and metacity, without desktop 3D effects
on i915 graphics HW.
As mentioned in comment #4, I'm using RCT2, not 1.

When retested with a recent Wine, alas I can't remember if it was 1.1.44,
1.2rc1 or 1.2rc2, the situation regressed on my machine: now the load&save
dialog appears but is completely unusable.  Using Alt-Tab and moving X11
windows above Roller Coaster 2's virtual desktop window seems to explain why:
the load dialog is painted, then it seems the main app should be painted above
it(!), but it does not get painted, leaving the dialog on screen - but it's
only an image, unresponsive to mouse events.  As a result, I can't load
anything and had a hard time aborting the dialog with the keyboard.
I have not reported this earlier as I've had no time yet for regression
testing.  Both issues seem related: a window stacking issue.
