What dlls are you setting to native?  Please update the applications database entry with this information.  At the present time, the only dll that I know of that has to be set to native is riched20.

It should be producing the same window type as all of the remaining Wine windows.  There is no 'magic' used with e-Sword and I know what language it was written in, but I am not allowed to discuss this information.  

What EXACTLY is the problem with e-Sword as I am the applications database entry maintainer?  Is some function not working or is the program not displaying correctly?  

And what Windows Manager are you using?  I run the program on MacOSX and FC with Gnome without windowing problems.
