           Summary: Possible race condition
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.2
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: Speeddymon at gmail.com

FC13 x86_64
wine 1.2 from Fedora repo
GeForce GTS250 with Twinview enabled, using nvidia binary driver from rpmfusion
Compiz disabled

When running World of Warcraft in Windowed/Maximized OpenGL mode, I seem to be
getting 100% CPU usage from Xorg and about 20% from WoW.exe but can't pin down
a certain way to reproduce it, therefore I assume there is a race condition
somewhere, but not sure if it is in Xorg or wine.

It does not result in a complete system hang. I am able to (slowly) get over to
my open terminal window, open a new tab, get top running, see Xorg chewing
through my processor, and then switch back to WoW to open the menu and hit

Once I get into top, my keyboard stops responding, even outside the terminal
window. Alt+Tab works to bring up the switcher menu, but won't actually switch,
'q' won't quit top, and alt+f4 won't quit wow, but the Escape key will at least
bring up the in-game menu to let me hit Exit Game. Once the menu is up I have
to slowly nudge the mouse toward the exit button since the FPS has dropped to
0.4fps by this point.

I would provide logs, but since I'm not sure what all areas this could touch, I
figured better to ask what you need me to do than provide useless information.
