I bought Intel because many people consider Intel's open source  
efforts to be the currently most advanced.

So it's a matter of getting rid of OpenGL?

Sorry, I fail to see how insisting on specific hardware solves a  
problem. AFAIK, Wine is meant to emulate Windows and any difference  
in application behaviour between Windows and Wine is a bug.

Obviously, it's a problem of how Wine tells applications which  
hardware is available. Not being a Windows developer I have no idea  
at which part of the API to look.

Anyways, I've put an entry into AppDB (currently to be reviewed) and  
filed a bug <http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10490> to track  
the issue.
