I fixed the performance issue with radeon cards. The problem was that wined3d 
set the mipmap level count for textures every time they where used. This 
caused the driver to remove the textures from video memory, and they had to 
be re-transfered over the bus constantly.

The slowness in guild wars sounds unrelated too. Maybe guild wars locks the 
render target. This is more or less broken in WineD3D at the moment, and 
horribly slow on radeon cards.
