Odd behavior when using (not drinking!) WINE

I have Ubuntu 9.10 and XP in a dual boot configuration, and would like
to switch to Ubuntu exclusively when I can. Right now, I have Hardwood
Solitaire III (my wife can't live without it) installed using Wine, and it
works but. . .
When I start the game, the screen goes black except for the very top of
the screen, where I can see a narrow strip of the opening screen of the
game. After fooling with it for a while, I figured out that I can press
Ctrl-Alt-Del, then hit Escape, and find the program down
on the task bar. I click the task bar icon of the game, and it responds
as if I had minimized the program. I click the icon on the task bar
again, and it is up and running just fine! If I exit without playing a
the problem repeats. If I play a game before exiting, the next time I
the game, all is well. Does anybody have any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
