RE: Fullscreen works randomly???

Well, on Ubuntu (and gnome in general) you set the keybind by running "gnome-keybinding-properties" and setting the "toggle fullscreen mode" option. (I set mine to ctrl+alt+enter.)
Before that option was set, nothing I did would make a window go fullscreen. I can see why they'd write it that way. If you don't have the toggle set, how do you get out of fullscreen mode?
With that keybind set and my CoH resolution set to desktop resolution, I get the peculiar message "option 1280 x 1024 not supported, using 1280 x 1024" when I start, but it does run correctly in 1280 x 1024. I should also note that the mouse loses compatible cursor setting even though I specified it. (The pointer still works fine, it just looks funny.)
If you're using another window manager, different rules will apply. Kmix sets keybinds for KDE, I take it.
Overall, I think I prefer the windowed/windowed (1272 x 971) mode now. Bear in mind that you must set "windowed" in CoH options and use a window in your window manager. Unfortunately, I suspect this is all more in the province of window handling than actual wine bugs.
