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!
