A few releases ago (.9.61 IIRC), Alexandre commited a fix to allow
configuring this on a per app basis. There are two ways:
Easy way:
Run winecfg
Add application in Applications tab.
Configure DLL overrides/windows versions/etc.
Tick virtual desktop in graphics tab.

Terminal way:
wine explorer /desktop=name,1024x768 program.exe
