[Wine] Problem in Arturia's Minimoog VST interface

Hi everybody,

Arturia's Minimoog V is a VST app that emulates the classic Minimoog 
Synthetizer. The audio works great in Linux with Wine (combined with 
Jack, vsthost and wineasio). However, the interface controls have severe 
bugs, which compromises the usage.

I made two videos to show the problems. The first one shows the normal 
operation on Windows XP (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tpbvd1gMxfk). 
The second one shows the application running with Wine 1.1.9 

With Wine, as soon as the app starts, a black background covers the 
original background. Besides that, every control events (like rotate 
knobs or turn on/off switches) soils the interface. The major problem 
appears when opening the top controls (by clicking at the top or 
clicking in the "open" button), when all the interface gets unusable.

I already tested with several Wine versions and Linux distributions, 
with the same results. The only unusual message in terminal is 
"fixme:xrender:X11DRV_AlphaBlend not a dibsection". Don't know if it has 
anything to do with that.

As I produce all my records in Linux and really like this app, hope that 
somebody could help with that. This is the only VST plugin where this 
problem happens. The demo version is available:
