[Wine] wine louses up display

Running PCLOS, KDE desktop, everything latest version.
Under certain conditions--one I can 100% repeat is Wine (Microsoft) 
Pinball--when I shut it down, by any means (escape key is straight-forward)
the desktop will come back up with the widgets scattered all over the 
place, most of them moved towards the top left of the display.
This happens in spite of the fact that the widgets were locked beforehand.
I have been advised that wine (or at least Pinball) changes the screen 
resolution, which is what louses up the display when the KDE desktop
comes back.

Looking for a solution that will automatically restore the screen to 
what it was before activating Wine Pinball.
(I found a similar situation with DOSBox. Would like a solution for that
