I kept my .wine folder and simply put it into place after I installed Fedora.  Now I cannot get Warcraft III to run well.  It ran great before, and after this upgrade it runs extremely choppy (one screen refresh every 3 seconds or so).  The sound works.  I have Warcraft III forced to use OpenGL as noted in the winehq post on it -- I had it this way before when it was working well.  I have tested OpenGL in X11 and it works (using glxgears and glxinfo).  My system is a dual proc PIII, with the Voodoo5 5500 AGP card.
There may be issues with OpenGL support starting around Wine 1.1.7.  Can
you revert to Wine 1.1.5 and see if this corrects the problem?
