Wine 0.9.25 full of regressions!

Hi, i am testing wine about every 3 days from current git. Warcraft 3 
cant run for me if i am using option "-opengl", with direct3d (default) 
it is working without any problems, but it is slower. If you want i can 
do testing every second day (after some changes in CVS) and report 
problems, but i cant every time find patch which is responsible for 
that. I think opengl rewriting should be done internaly, not merging 
half of work into current CVS, because it broke so much apps.
