[Wine] Starting DirectX game screws up display (ATI Catalyst 8.6)

since installing the new ATI Catalyst 8.6 drivers - starting games (or sometimes even starting winecfg) screws up my display and I have to restart the xserver. (amd x2 4000+, ati hd2600 xt, wine version is 1.1.1
 on Ubuntu Hardy updated every day) Looks similar to this photo:
However, if i take a screenshot by pressing the "print" key the image recorded shows a normal screen. So I guess this is more driver related but still caused by some wine call.
Unfortunately I cannot downgrade to the old driver, because with Catalyst 8.5 I just get a black screen staring EVE-Online (which is the main reason I want to use wine). With 8.6 i can see through the screw up display the eve windows - so it seams to work. 

Any hints on this?
