The problem with IDA is that the button you see in the Windows task bar
does not belong to the main IDA window, it belongs to a zero sized visible
window with the same caption. Since it's zero sized Wine doesn't map it all.
So, while formally it's a regression, technically it's not: main IDA window
has never been added to the task bar before my patch. This all can be easily
discovered with spy++ and a simple test app.
