winecfg at least probes your OpenGL setup, so it is being used in this
With your current Xinerama setup and native games, what happens if you

Which is exactly why I think that the one-head-only acceleration is the
issue here.

Before you post:
Read the Wine User Guide http://winehq.org/site/docs/wineusr-guide/index
When you post:
Which wine version? Self compiled or prepackaged?
