long time online playing.
THE MOUSE ESCAPE BUG The problem is cured by a new dinput.dll code. it has not made it into wine release versions, however somebody has provided precompiled dinput.dll files to over come the issue. you can find it at http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=5444 in the HOWTO section.
