RE: Pbuffer error

Ah good you got it cleared up. *whew* :) No thanks are necessary as you have done all the hard work. :)
I have the same issue with loading the contact pictures. I didn't have that on Etch though, which seems odd. It may be a new "feature" with 9.49 of Wine. I have noticed though, if you let it sit there and load them up (go take a bio break or what have you) then it is done for the rest of the game for that character. Now I haven't gone back into a character yet to see if it is still cached up (fingers crossed that it is).
For alt-tabbing I don't use the window manager, and I stay in full screen, so, I don't really know. When I am in the game I am in the game and don't like to be interrupted from the game. Hopefully someone else can offer some advice there...
And for the mouse issue, I had mentioned some odd behavior with my mouse in my test results. It doesn't seem to be particular to a variation of OS as I still have it in Ubuntu Gutsy as I did in Debian Etch, but I will have to see if the pointer is changing position on me when I am trying to mouse look. I really wasn't looking for that, but I think you are on to something there, and that may be a bug (hopefully a regression that they missed). I was thinking it had something to do with a buffer for the mouse getting overloaded with input and thus starting to lag behind, as I noticed if I hit a movement key, it would briefly clear up, but it could be I am experiencing a different issue altogether.
