Forzen Throne working fine for me on Ubuntu 9.04 with Intel X3100 and
Warcraft 1.22 (1.23 has some issues under Wine... Battle.net works,
but it crashes when in menus for too long, and LAN is broken)

1. Graphics card? (nVidia seem to be recommended for use with Wine,
even though they do not help open-source drivers' development, their
drivers suck less (And/Or Wine seem to be better tested with and even
slightly targeted at their drivers...))

2. Have you followed the AppDb instructions on how to run it in OpenGL mode?

3. Have you disabled compiz? (Desktop effects)
