[Wine]Adobe Photoshop 7 Problems

I have Wine 20041019 and have done all the configuration with Wine tools.
Then I Installed Photoshop 7 by executing ~/bin/dos then going to the
cdrom drive and running the setup executable. The setup went fine and
photoshop was installed.

Then I simulated a windows reboot from wine tools.

Then i again executed ~/bin/dos and went to the place where i
Installed photoshop 7 and executed Photoshop.exe .

It starts without any problems. Now for my problems:

1 ) The clone tool nor the healing brush does't work, I need to use a
lot of clone tool for my work and this does't work so it is a bit
irritating. I press down the alt key , the cursor changes for me to
select the source and then i chose the Image source and when i try to
clone using this source elsewhere on the image it says chose image
source by pressing the alt-key first.
this does't make sense, this happens even if i start photoshop from
the wine - sub menu in xfce. so the terminal blocking my alt key is
not the problem, but all other functions like alt+F , etc work. Please
HELP me.

2 ) This is not a major problem, When i use photoshop from fluxbox all
the layer and tools window go below the main photoshop window when i
start working on the image so i have resize the main window to be
smaller so that the tools and layers window are on the desktop itself
and not on the main window (like gimp) , this does't happen in xfce
though, so does anyone know how to solve this problem.
