wine + steam


I'm running Steam under Wine (specifically Crossover Office 3.1.0-alpha4) and it all works reasonably well except for one issue. The Steam windows will stay on the screen regardless of which desktop I'm using and I can't minimise them. It's mainly just an annoyance rather than anything but I thought I'd ask to see if anybody has a workaround or if even experiencing it.

Using Xorg 6.8.0, fluxbox 0.9.10, CX Office 3.1.0-alpha4, think that's all thats relevant.

Known problem. You can use desktop mode as a workaround for now.

By the way I should mention that using Steam on CrossOver is unsupported and potentially dangerous (you may be banned from the Steam network)
