You have to patch each Wine that you use.  I just upgraded from 1.3.1 to
1.3.15, you don't have to upgrade each wine release, especially if the wine you
have is working great for what you use it for.

The problem is a software mouse.  In windows it's probably a HW mouse cause of
DirectX, (or the software mouse behaves better because of directX, i'm not
really sure).  The reason I know it's a software mouse, is cause if you compile
my patch into wine you generally see 2 mouse pointers.  Your themed pointer and
the games pointer that lags behind the themed pointer.  

Basically the patch gives you a Faux HW mouse.  What I can do is add code that
looks for different mouse pointers, and for each game you could put a cursor
you like just rename it to what I say, and it would use that mouse pointer,
instead of the default Left Pointer.

But again you don't have to update wine if everything is working.
