           Summary: Red Alert 2 "skirmish aftermath": user needs to
                    "Alt+Tab" for the game to react
           Product: Wine
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown

In Red Alert 2, you can do skirmish battles.

Once the skirmish is finished (you won or were defeated), the game presents you
a table ("skirmish aftermath") comparing all commanders.

Normally, the player should be able to hit 'Continue' to return to the main
menu, but clicking on the button does nothing.

The user actually needs to click 'Continue' then produce an event on the window
itself: 'Alt+Tab' works under Gnome, KDE, XFCE4[1].

Attached is a saved game seconds from victory (just use the group of prism
tanks to destroy the remaining enemy buildings).

NOTE: My installation is Red Alert 2 + Yuri's revenge. I can attach a Red Alert
2 only saved game if that is a problem.

To use the attached saved game:
1- Copy/move/whatever the file 'WINETEST.SAV' in the main Red Alert 2 directory
(in my case that is /home/vhann/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/RA2/);
2- Start the game (Ra2md.exe);
3- From the main menu go to 'Single Player' -> 'Load saved game' (or something
like that) -> 'WineTestSkirmish';
4- Destroy the remaining enemy buildings;
5- "Skirmish aftermath" is before your eyes;

My guess, if that is worth anything is that the user must cause a window redraw

[1] Being under wmii on this computer, [Alt]+[Tab] doesn't work, I must use my
window manager's hotkey to move the window
