[Wine] Steam Games - Flickering/Flashing Menu during Gameplay.

Hello. I recently installed Steam through Wine 1.0.0, but when I run DOD: Source, Half Life, DOD, or Deathmatch Classic, I experience the same problem. The game loads and runs fine, but the menu screen is flashing over the actual gameplay images every second. It's as if the menu screen is trying to stay on top of the game, but it's struggling to do so.

I am using Ubuntu 8.04, Wine 1.0.0 and I have 1 gig of ram, 1.8 GHz Processor, 128 MB Graphics card. I have tried setting the refresh rate to 60hz, changing the games resolution, changing the Rendering Device to OpenGL, D3D and Software, but none of this has fixed the problem. I even tried running it in a Virtual Desktop, but this caused the program to freeze my computer.

Does anyone know what the problem could be?
