I looked at this some time ago but got distracted and dropped it again.

The problem doesn't just apply to depth stencil surfaces but to all other 
objects as well(buffers, textures, shaders, ...). We already keep an internal 
refcount, sort of - The refcount of the wined3d object. This refcount is 
already addrefed in Set*. So when the d3d9 object is released, the wined3d 
one stays intact and can be used for rendering. However, things currently 
fail if the app tries to retrieve the original object with a getter.

My idea was to add a callback to d3d9(and other) objects to allow wined3d 
trigger the final release.
