Updated DDraw over WineD3D patch

So I gave the latest version of Fallout1 a try with the patch,
imageshack link to screenshot below :)


The game looks and works mostly correctly with only two issues:

1) The mouse lags, even though the game itself seems to be rendering
pretty quickly. There was no mouse lag in the old ddraw implementation.

2) When selecting new game, load game, etc. from the main menu, the menu
used to nicely fade out. This effect was really slow under the old
implementation and was what motivated me to try this patch. Now the
effect doesn't happen at all, it goes black and then immediately to the
next screen. Nice for me but still a regression ;)

3) There's an error on exit. Output from running below. Let me know if
there are any traces that would be useful to you.

I'm running the 8.23.7 (latest version) of the proprietary fglrx drivers
on a Radeon 9700 Pro (native linux opengl apps like neverball and
tuxracer work great) on the dapper drake (unstable) release of ubuntu. 

I tried the patch against current cvs but it won't apply so I tested it
with the CVS time from your site, March 9th 23:40.
