             Bug #: 29558
           Summary: Wine and Ubuntu Unity cause malfunctioning!
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.3.36
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: turbolad995 at hotmail.co.uk
    Classification: Unclassified

When running programs in Wine with Unity in Ubuntu, problems arise.  When using
GNOME, the problems disappear!

Here's one way of reproducing the problem in Ubuntu version 11.04 (64-bit):

Log into Ubuntu with Unity (the default) and open the game called "Ballistic"
with Wine - download the game from here:

Try playing that game with Wine; simply right-click within the game's window
and use the left mouse button to release the ball.  Watch how it doesn't work
in Unity, now the next step...  Logout of Ubuntu.  At the bottom of the login
screen, change the login session to "Ubuntu Classic (No effects)".  Now play
that game in Wine - it works properly without Unity.

This bug/conflict with Wine and Unity is not caused by old hardware, as my
computer is less than 1 year old.
