wine killing X?

Yes, I get this too. It's present in 0.9.36 and appears to have been
introduced in 0.9.35 or possibly 0.9.34.
I can reproduce this bug pretty easily when I run world of warcraft on
wine. My setup is a virtual 1024x768 wine window. I start wow it plays
just fine for as long as I want .... _as long as I don't move that
virtual wine window_ anywhere on the desktop. If I do move the virtual
window, within about 15 seconds, the screen will freeze. And it really
does freeze in a big way, it not only freezes X but you can't even type
a CNTRL-ALT F1 to F6 to bring up a login screen (keyboard unresponsive)
so you can not even login to shut the system down cleanly.
I haven't tried updating my ATI proprietary driver to the latest version
yet, although the one I'm runing is pretty recent. But I will update it
to the latest & see if that has any effect.
Here's my hardware spec.
Wine 0.9.36 (DiasabledExtensions added to registry)
ATI 9550 256MB AGP (ATI Driver 8.35.5) (No 3D desktop installed, such as
Suse 10.2 3.0GHz P4 + 1GB CPU memory
Wow 2.0.12 working with wine 0.9.36 in opengl mode flawlessly! on a 1280
x 1024 desktop in a wine 1024 x 768 virtual desktop window, except when
you move the virtual window about.
Known problems 1. switching video resiolutions in game causes a crash)
