Yes, I did install the game to a clean prefix. Both Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 were 64-bit. Yes, I'm compiling from source (and running Wine directly from the build directory).

Phantasy Star Online Blue Burst. I didn't mention this because bug #27293 also involves keyboard input and I didn't want to cause confusion. It may or may not be related but I want to first determine why (using the same version of Wine) I'm getting different results on two versions of Ubuntu. It's possible that this is something broken that Ubuntu can fix but I have to identify the component that is interfering with Wine first.
