I don't know if it helps, but have you tried playing with the winecfg settings?
In particular the capture mouse option, as well as the virtual desktop option.

Otherwise you could try changing windowed/fullscreen mode in the game, and if everything fails you could try the registry:


look for DXGrab and MouseWarpOverride.

Another thing that can be tried is a native direct input dll (dinput.dll), and another is to try an older wine version, and if it works, bisect to find the patch that broke it for you.

Good luck, good hunting.
