wine's fullscreen code has no effect on metacity

Some patches were committed to wine recently to make it use
_NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN for fullscreen apps. These patches appear to
work in kwin but not metacity (I was using firefox as a test). In
metacity, it appears wine recognizes that it needs to make a window
fullscreen and send the appropriate message, but nothing happens
(panels are still on top of firefox in fullscreen mode).

I've mentioned this on wine's bug
(, but I suspect it's
probably caused by some quirk in metacity that wine triggers by doing
some rather odd things itself. That's why I've CC'd the metacity-devel
list (to which I and probably anyone on any wine mailing lists are not

So, uh, metacity people, under what circumstances would metacity be
likely to put a window that had sent the proper _NET_WM_STATE_ADD
message for _NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN behind panels?
