	Actually this is wrong impression. Simply if game was ran on very slow 
computer it is possible that it even hasn't enough time to update whole 
screen - because it needs update it again! This is why you have such an 
impression. But in fact if it was 0-20 slower (acutally it WAS in older Wine) 
then you will need at least 10-20 more processor speed to play normally (i.e. 
something like 2000-6000 Mhz!). This isn't the case in new Wine. In reality 
DIB is about 2-3 times slower - that means you need 600-800 Mhz processor at 
least. And yes Heroes 3 can use only one processor - but this isn't 
limitation of Wine, it is limitation of most Windows programs.
