Handles of other process windows can be returned by FindWindow, yes.

But current Wine returns them also in enumeration functions, like
EnumWindows. A functions like SetCursor, when trying to set the
cursor for all desktop children, triggers this kind of message.

The error message shows that Wine development is not complete
because some function fails between processes (in SetCursor
case, it is X11DRV_get_whole_window), not necessarily a 
problem in FindWindow.

Try to lookup the origin for the handles :  it is a problem only if
the app get them from a FindWindow call.
