There was a similar request in a bug a few weeks ago. Someone made
the comment that since Windows's explorer doesn't support this, we
can't, even though running it on a per-app basis with the 'wine
explorer /desktop=name,1024x768 app.exe" workaround allows it to work.
I asked for an explanation in the bug, but received no response (I
can't find the bug off hand, I'll keep looking).
