[Wine] Installing MS Train Simulator

When I try to install MS Train Simulator the setup.exe
program switches to full screen mode. This full screen
mode hides all other installer windows. The window that
asks me if I want to install Adobe and the window that
asks me to replace CD1 with CD2 are not visible.
Therefore it is necessary to guess what I should do
during the installation and do the input blindly.

The main installation window has a minimize button.
When I press this minimizer button the installation
screen minimizes. Afterwards it is impossible to get
the installation screen back. It just stays minimized.

This happened with wine version 0.9.46 under
Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper Drake). My graphics is on board.

I am not interested in informations about hacks to get
MS Train Simulator working, like take an old version
of wine (i know that the installation worked already),
use this or that original dll and after the installation
you have to patch this and that file.

I mail this bug report to help the wine developers to
bring wine to a state where such things work out of the
box. I think that approx. three wine versions ago the
installation of MS Train Simulator worked without
any windowing foreground / background problems.
So probably some windowing changes where suboptimal.
