Diablo II, Direct Rendering, nvidia binary driver

Hi folks. I've got a problem with getting Diablo II to work with direct rendering.

Some information:

tycho@mittens:~$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: Yes

tycho@mittens:~$ wine --version

tycho@mittens:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

For those of you who are aware, Diablo II has a d2vidtest.exe, which is supposed to detect video modes. For whatever reason, it says that it couldn't find any video modes.

A possible solution to this problem is listed here:

However I'm running a twinview setup, so I'm not sure how that fits into the picture. Any hints?
