The patch was used in a browser plugin that uses PowerPoint Viewer
(97/2003/2007) and WINE to display PowerPoint slideshows. While
developing the plugin, I've found that PowerPoint Viewer always playback
slides inside a window that covers the whole desktop. Hence the idea
was born to embed the desktop inside a native X11 window.
I thought this patch might be useful to others with similar
requirements, namely, to embed full-screen win32 applications inside a
native X11 window.
