I believe this is the same issue i am seeing with IE started in full 
screen mode. It appears that those windows are being created in 
unmanaged mode and thus never generate any of the focus events that wine 
uses to try to track input focus.

if you place them into a desktop then it works fine. I am unfamiliar 
enough with that level of the windowing code that i am unsure how to fix 
it right.
