[Wine] Odd window behaviour

Thanks for that, Martin.  I was already using the wrapper script idea 
(from a suggestion you made in an earlier thread, in fact) but was 
missing how to get the output into a file (I've only just started 
learning how to use Bash properly).

The last few lines of the output are below - the full output is 
available at http://tinypaste.com/1de560 for anyone who's interested - 
which, to my untrained eye seems to implicate the X server.  I do find 
it interesting, though, that this problem *only* manifests when calling 
the script from a launcher on the panel.
