I dug around a bit more;
says LockWindowUpdate can't be implemented for real until the update
region handing
is moved to the server, which is related to
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94, "Rewrite of window management code"
and indeed, if you look at Alexandre's to-do list, you see
  Fix LockWindowUpdate.
listed right there.

So- is this something Alexandre hopes to fix for 1.0, or is it for later?
