I just mentioned the problem on foobars irc channel,
and someone posted some sample WM_PAINT code that I
believe is what you might have been looking for
(BeginPaint isn't used anywhere). According to the
foobar devs, and I've heard this from previous threads
in the foobar forums when wine had issues with
repainting the playlist, is that BeginPaint is not
nessesary, and that seems to be a recuring problem
with wine.

Attached is the code that was posted in the irc
channel. I'm not enough of a dev to make sense of it,
but hopefully it'll help.

   case WM_PAINT:
      RECT rcPaint;
      HDC hdc;
     } ps;
     if (!GetUpdateRect(wnd,&ps.rcPaint,0))
     ps.hdc = GetDC(wnd);
     int min,max;
     min = display_offset + (ps.rcPaint.top/item_height);
     max = display_offset + (ps.rcPaint.bottom/item_height) + 2;
     int n;
     if (max>get_count()) max = get_count();
     for(n=min;n<max;n++) repaint(n,ps.hdc,&ps.rcPaint);
     int blank_top = (get_count() - display_offset) * item_height;
     if (blank_top < ps.rcPaint.bottom)
      RECT temp = ps.rcPaint;
      temp.top = blank_top;
      HBRUSH br = CreateSolidBrush(cfg_playlist_background);
