Confirmed: Metacity always fails to paint unminimized wine windows.
Compiz has not this problem, because windows are not really minimized in a classic sense, but instead are drawn into off-screen buffers, I think.
Gnome can run the default, metacity, or compiz. Use ps to find out which one you are running.
[foo]$ show metaci
2562 ? 00:00:01 metacity
[foo]$ which show
alias show='ps -A | grep -i'
