I do not know if this helps, but on some games, Wine correctly activates fullscreen mode in metacity, but in others, it just resizes the screen and gets stuck that way... For example, Sim City 3000. Ubuntu Breezy and Fedora Core 5 cannot seem to properly go into fullscreen mode. But when running Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? metacity properly activates fullscreen mode with it. Same thing with ClueFinders, etc.

I've enabled that key combination, and I can now make gedit fullscreen

how I missed it..).

Pressing alt+f11 when windows firefox thinks it's in fullscreen mode
has no effect. xprop shows no _NET_WM_STATE.

However, it does work (sort of) if I press it when firefox is not in
fullscreen mode, except that I can see part of the bottom panel (but
can't interact with it; I assume it's really firefox's window there
but firefox hasn't drawn anything). xprop does show

I'm not aware of anything different about how wine sets fullscreen
from other programs that I know work with metacity (I've compared the
source code and as far as I can tell it's identical, unless wine is
doing something else I'm not aware of).
