What does not

When closing the game on my machine, the last image remained on screen, though I could interact with things "behind" it.  See bug # 53917.


Resetting the screen (such as turning it off/on with xrandr) will clear the image left behind after the game closes.  I do this automatically by starting the game using a shell script:

# Read and understand this script before use.  Use at your own risk.
# Requires python and python-psutil
wine 'C:\Program Files\Myst\Myst 3\Launch Myst 3 Exile.lnk'
# Unfortunately, wine now returns so we can't just wait for that.
# Hopefully finds the screen Myst 3 is running on.
primary=$(xrandr | grep primary | sed s'/ .*//')

# Returns when residualvm.exe closes
python -c 'import psutil; psutil.wait_procs([psutil.Process('$(pidof residualvm.exe)')])'

# Reset primary output. This might also screw up positioning with multi-monitor setups.
xrandr --output $primary --off
xrandr --output $primary --auto
