For something like this, you should create a bug in Bugzilla for this, see 
here: <http://bugs.winehq.org>. Add the url for the demo and keyword the bug 
with regression and download. Also, it would be ideal if you could do a 
regression test with git, then you can pinpoint the specific patch which 
broke it, see section 6 here: <http://wiki.winehq.org/GitWine>.

I tried the demo in today's git and it seems to be fine (although I had to set 
the Windows version to 98, when reporting 2000 it bombs out saying that it 
doesn't support NT yet), although setting the resolution to 1024x768 didn't 
seem to change anything. Were you running this in a virtual desktop? I was.
