Ah I understand now. Do you know when the 'in DIB section' patch will be
sent to wine-patches (maybe after the 0.9 freeze) ?

I think once this is in, I will try (for fun) to see if I can get a hacked
version of wgl.c together which uses DIB for the 'in window' rendering part.
It would only handle 'back buffer' rendering (i.e. the DIB flushing would be
done on the swap buffer call) but it could be a temporary solution waiting
for a real OpenGL guru (i.e. not me) to fix using funky extensions :-)
