I tried once to do a 'DXGrab' for the virtual desktop but was constrained by
the fact that only the connection doing the mouse grab would get any
subsequent events.

And as in Wine you can have multiple processes sharing the same window, only
the one doing the grab would get events and all other processes won't get
any mouse / keyboard inputs.

Now with the new explorer and all that, maybe one could imagine it
forwarding the events to other applications via the server, but well, this
is a part of Wine I do not master at all :-)


PS: 'non-exclusive grab' was one of my 'X11' extension I planned to work one
    day :-)
