What graphics card and driver do you use? This is important. I use a
Radeon 9200 and DRI. In Warcraft III+opengl under wine, things would
"disappear", but then re-appear under different conditions. I have
screen shots I can upload that shows this in action. I used to use an
nvidia card with the official driver. Comparatively, the nvidia
graphics setup rendered everything perfectly.

You are correct, it used to work. I just tried it yesterday and it
didn't work for me either.

Unfortunately I can't try your game at the moment cause it will take
me too long to download -- 2 KB/s down only =(
