It's OK that a WM constrains windows to be placed inside of its work area but still allows to place them into a fullscreen state on request. How would you suggest to properly inform a WM that a window needs to be in a fullscreen state? Does metacity ignore ClientMessage/_NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN request due
to 'fullscreenable = 0' or something else?

I'm not next to the machine where I had the log unpacked, so I'm not sure, but yeah if fullscreenable=0 when the client message is received then that would cause it to be ignored. I think some tweaking to when fullscreenable is set would be well worth trying out as a solution.

Anything else I can do to help fixing this problem? Do you need any further
testing/logs/investigation on the Wine side?

You could try patching metacity with either of the fixes mentioned here (or some other fix) and verify that they work for wine:

They are both basically 1-2 line changes, so there's no patch there but there should be enough info to easily patch metacity.

The other thing to test I guess is whether apps like e.g. mplayer/xine still get heuristically fullscreened, though for all I know recent mplayer uses the proper hints now.

It's best to add further info on the bug so it doesn't get lost.
