I am working on Direct3D and DirectDraw, and I wrote the new DirectDraw over 
WineD3D implementation.

From looking at the (tiny) description in the appdb it seems that there are 3 
different issues. The "lenght not multiple" messages are sound related - I 
hardly know about that. The "managed" issue, do you mean it only runs in a 
virtual desktop, or when you allow the window to be controlled by the linux 
window manager? Last, the flawky menus and cutscenes could be because of the 
lack of a proper GDI engine. You can test that by enabling the ddraw debug 
channel and searching for GetDC calls.
