This is why the Wine developers recommend NOT using any 'fancy' windows managers like Metacity and Compiz.  They are not robust enough to handle situations like these.  If the problem continues, Alexandre recommended and so do I opening a bug report with the windows manager.  This is not a bug in Wine as it does work with Gnome/KDE/AQUA (MacOSX interface) through Apple's X11 process.
