Hello,

Wine apps that normally work fine in other distros have a very 
irritating bug in Unity+Compiz, in which tooltips do not disappear.

There are many documented cases of this bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/957879

The bug can be eliminated by adding a simple Compiz rule to detect Wine 
programs:

In Compiz Settings Manager, under Animations, "Close Animation" tab, 
look for the window match line for Fade that reads:

(type=Menu | PopupMenu | DropdownMenu | Combo | Dialog | ModalDialog | 
Normal)

Edit that line and add to the end of it:

& !(class=\.exe$)

** Please add this rule by default so as to avoid bothering Wine users. **

Thanks!
