Winex Starcraft Fullscreen

I installed Starcraft on Mandrake 9.1 using the Winex and Wine setup program from

The game works but I cannot get it to run in fullscreen. It either runs in a window or the top left of the screen. I tried to edit a X86Config and putting the needed 640x480 resolution, however when switching to it using the Ctrl-Alt + command the Starcraft window will fill the screen but by putting the cursor at the edge of the screen I can scroll over to a huge version of my desktop.

How do I fix this so that Starcraft will run in a fullscreen mode like it should in Windows?

I also tried changing my screen resolution which works, but my icon placement is messed by doing so.

Oh man. I have same problem.
Before, I started wine (x) as root, and it was really fullscreen (no scrolling in edges).
But now, as root, it don't start. And as user, I have the scrolling problem.

There must be some permissions for the X fullscreen, but dunno where to fix it.
In some games it is OK (like Elma or T.Annihilation), but in games where U need to scroll with mouse ..... (like Baldur's gate) it suxx.

Somebody please help !
