In the code (x11ddraw.c), I found
  if (dxgrab) GrabPointer(TRUE);
...with GrabPointer definitely doing something.

What exactly were you referring to when saying that option's broken? If 
it's not "that setting doesn't change anything" but "mouse handling in 
Wine is in general partially broken" (as in 
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6971 ) this is a completely 
different matter probably.
