That's a Xrandr issue: Wine uses Xrandr to change the screen resulution: Both 
the virtual Desktop and the Screen resolution are changed. Cedega only 
changes the Screen resolution just as if you typed Ctrl + alt + "+". The 
reason why Wine so is a mouse locking issue: dinput.dll fails to lock the 
mouse inside the Wine window often, and if the Desktop is bigger than the 
screen, one can accidentally move the mouse outside the game window.
The solution to this one is to fix dinput and avoid the use of Xrandr.

There's a registy key to force the cedega behavior I think it's 
HKCU\Software\Wine\X11 Driver\UseXrandr, but I am not sure.

You can still edit them in the registry files. Have a look at 
HKCU/Software/Wine/ This path is stored in ~/.wine/user.reg, which can be 
edited with any text editor.

I don't think such an option is needed - You can simply cd into the needed 
directory. If you want to run the app from a GUI menu, you can set a working 
path for that menu entry.
