I resolved conflicts for wine-1.0, but didn't take a look yet for  
wine-1.1.0, i just know that's some changes in user32 and winex11.drv
have to be update in winequartz.drv too.

I will see this week end if i can find free time to make a new patch  
for winequartz.drv and send it to SourceForge.
(OpenGL is broken in winequartz.drv actually, because of a lack of  
time to fix it)
