IMHO this is related to heavy usage of window messaging and directdraw 
stuff mixed in this game.

And I at least can easily see some corrupted bitmap at the start of each 
new user screen (while out of game).  When mouse is moved over the logo 
bitmap, the bitmap gets redrawn OK.

With one WM rewrite patch [1] the case got worse.  Now the main screen 
isn't redrawable anymore (but user still can navigate through graphic 
buttons blindly).

There are at least ~3 alive bugs left and crossed under one game here, I 
guess.  IIRC, 2 another critical bugs were eliminated already.

Can you tell us exact date, please, at which the game worked?  If I would 
knew this, I would already was doing several-years-wide regression test.
