    something that still annoys me is the missing support for hosting in wc3 -_-
    it was a promised feature in 1.0 and worked in older versions, but its still missing in 1.19...
    i know i can patch it, but thats still annoying!

    Does anyone happen to know if it is possible to make wine completely take over the keyboard?

    When I press CTRL+ALT+arrow the desktop starts to turn (Compiz ) even Wine is in full screen.

    This is not a bug or design error in Wine. It's actually a design feature for the X desktop environment. If it's only a couple of keyboard shortcuts you want to use in Wine/games then you should edit the keyboard shortcuts for Compiz.

    Or you could start up a second X server ("startx -- :2 &" from some virtual terminal) without any window manager.

    GNOME:

    metacity --replace &

    KDE:

    kwin --replace &

    When I do that, Compiz is disabled, but then Metacity is the problem...

    If I "kill metacity" then it just respawns.
