This works in the version 0.945 (the only bug there is that the resolution is not adjusted while alt tabbing, but I guess everybody can live with that). I'm an ubuntu user, so using an old version, creates a lot of troubles on my system. Actually it's not even possible to install it via gui but on the command line, fucking up my update manager, which gets a lot of depency problems.

There are thousands of open bugs...many developers are volunteers and
code on what they want. If you've got coding skills, feel free to fix
it. Only the paid developers are really forced to do anything, but
that's from Codeweavers, not from Wine.
