Description Christopher Wright 2012-04-29 20:14:20 EDT
Description of problem: When playing a full-screen windows game under wine (currently 1.5.2 but I suspect it isn't actually a wine problem) moving the mouse causes world to spin wildly, making navigation impossible.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

wine 1.5.2-2.fc17
xort-x11-server-common 1.12.0-2.fc17


How reproducible:

I can specifically demonstrate this with City of Heroes. I have also read other posts identifying it as a problem in one of the Diablo games.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in to game
2. Select character
3. Turn on mouse look (so mouse disappears)
4. Attempt to move mouse
  
Actual results:

Character spins in a circle and never stops.

Expected results:

World should pan only by the length of movement of the mouse.

Additional info:

Back when I was using Kubuntu I encountered this bug, and it was at the time identified as an incompatibility in xserver. Apparently Wine adopted a new way of handling mouse movements that older versions of xserver didn't support correctly. 

This is a launchpad bug report that explains the problem on the Ubuntu side. I have no idea if it is relevant to the fedora side, but I thought I'd link to it in case it proves useful:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg-server/+bug/948938

Apologies if this is not the appropriate way to report this problem.

Should be fixed in xorg-x11-server-1.12.1-1.fc17 and later, the patch in the launchpad report got merged then. If that's not the case, please re-open.
