Yes, you're mangling the terminology here. What you do here is a virtual 
desktop. Managed mode means that the windows are managed by the X11 window 
manager(so they have the window decorations like Linux apps and can be 
minimized as normal), while unmanaged mode means that wine manages them, they 
have windows 95-style decos and stay on top of all Linux apps. Managed mode 
is the default, I think you can enable unmanaged mode with a registry switch.
