I would like to nominate bug #5828. It causes the system cursor to be
displayed instead of the proper game cursors in games such as C&C Generals
and C&C 3 Tiberium Wars, making them less eye-catchy and harder to play.
There is a proposed patch (not suitable for inclusion according to the
author) to make the cursors work, so advanced users won't be too harmed since
they can compile a custom Wine to get the games working. But considering
that C&C 3 is 3rd top rated in the AppDB and has a free demo, I'd say we
should make it work out-of-the-box.
Bug #8048 to support a shader setting higher than 'lowest' might also be worth
