Thanks for the input, I updated the patch.;h=234f676e0421e073b116c2c70896772d9650715f

I looked at it, but I can't find anything that seems wrong. But
that doesn't mean anything because I don't have much experience
with signals and I don't know how they are used in wine. I just
know that it's complicated to use them correctly in wine and thus
should be avoided.

Perhaps there is another usable way to toggle this with
applications that don't have keyboard? E.g. add some button to
Wines taskmanager for this or some winelib-application that does
that or use a pipe or some other means to signal this. I also
read something about global keyboard shortcuts (that react on a
hot-key without having focus), if wine supports those now,
perhaps those can be used. With some of these it may even be
possible to get this into wine.
