I doubt it's a game-specific problem, or a Wine problem, or even a
Linux problem, because I occasionally see the same kind of behavior
in a pure X11 program called "xpdf" -- in both Linux and FreeBSD
(which uses a completely different kernel than Linux).  I suppose it
is some kind of strange X11 bug that both Wine (when running Civ 4)
and xpdf manage to provoke.

And no, I have no idea what causes it or how to go about fixing it.
