	I have tested Lightwave 6 (didn't yet tested new version but I guess it will 
work too), GoogleEarth (for Windows) and Maxwell Studio 1.5.1 (for Windows) 
and everything works fine! I'm using Debian Etch and KDE 3.5.5 and my X 
server has XComposite extension enabled but I don't actually use it in KDE so 
I'm not sure does this have any useful effect or not.
	It's so great that this bug is finally fixed! I really tired to port big 
hacky patches to new versions of WINE... Now everything works out-of-the box!
	Great work!
