I've been having the screen tearing issue as well, for about a week.  It's not clear whether the symptoms followed the WoW 3.3.3 update, or an update to wine or the ATI drivers.  At times the whole Wow window is broken into rapidly moving colored polygons, at other times there's just some flashing bright lines like tracer fire.  Only seems to affect the background window if there is a foreground window present.

I've upgraded Ubuntu to 10.04 (lucid) with no relief.  At this point I've got fglrx 8.723.1 (latest from ATI) and wine 1.1.43.

Has anyone solved this problem?

Turning on VSync doesn't fix the problem.  Problem appears whether in windowed mode or full-screen mode.  Output of glxinfo includes
