Most of the functionality seems to be working. I could create and edit some more or less complicated documents with several pages and different effects. I tested for about 4 Weeks so far.
What does not
The Clipboard does not work correctly. You can copy plain text into CorelDraw but you cannot copy CorelDraw graphics objects into the clipboard. This raises an application exception. (With older Wine versions this was a no-op without any message.)
The only way to move or copy objects between different pages of a file is to use the desktop layer. I know no way to copy or move objects between different documents.
Screen redraw is slow, but this could be due to the VRDP connection and the high resolution (1920*1440), too.
Printing did not suceed. The printer output was some plain text. (I guess PostScript)
But exporting a PDF and print this one with linux performs well.
What was not tested
I did not test the other applications of the graphics suite. And in fact due to the large functionality of the application I cannot test any function in any context.

Current State (2007-09-16)
Corel Draw was tested using wine 0.9.22 - 45 and - so far - CorelDraw is currently working. Needs some addtional native dlls and laks of printing support. But works fine for me.
- Rotated Text becomes invisible on some systems
- Printing produces only printed postscript code instead of the graphics
Applying Service Packs to Corel Draw becomes possible. For all those who don't have the service packs I added it to my Webseite: http://www.intersoft-networks.ch/index.php?id=29.
Corel Draw 9 currently (as at 2007-09-16) works only with wine 0.9.22 (as far as tested). There are several dlls required to make full functionality working. Installation works without any addtional hack (just start the setup).
Running Corel needs the following dlls:
The dlls are required to enable copy+paste as well as pdf export.
Set the Windows Version to "Windows 98" and Corel 9 with the follwing WINEDLLOVERRIDES:
Crashes sometimes but it works good for the rest .
