This does not 'solve' the problem, but rather masks the missing code in Wine.  It would be great if one of the WoW folks visited Wine's Bugzilla and updated any existing WoW bug for DirectX and advised what is/is not working and included a logging file so that developers are advised of successes/failures in the current state of Wine's DirectX implementation.

This may require a higher version of DirectX than DirectX v9.  Maybe 10 or 11.  Since I don't work with games (mainly) but productivity programs, I cannot give a positive statement where this is implemented.
