I'm with you. This is the single most annoying regression I've ever seen in 
Wine. As  this seems to be top-priority anyway, it's one of the best possible 
SOC candidates (this and a DIB engine), given that most regular devs that 
might be able to fix the regression don't seem all too motivated to really 
touch that issue. Who cares if games take a slight performance hit, if a fix 
would unbreak lots and lots of applications that used to work - an acceptable 
tradeoff, IMHO...
