This is caused by wine incorrectly setting the fullscreen hint (via an old method). Enabling the "Workarounds" plugin adds support for this - I will see if we can enable it by default. There are a number of programs using this legacy fullscreen mode.

There are are also a lot of old proprietary programs that need this. For instance old programs statically linked against FTLK need these workarounds, as they set fullscreen by just making the window the size of the desktop, and setting its position to 0,0 (this was long long before the window manager hints existed obviously). Without the workarounds, they get positioned to not overlap panels instead.

We enable the workarounds plugin by default, we just need to enable "Legacy fullscreen support" by default too.

This has gotten worse with the latest compiz in hardy (1:0.7.0-0ubuntu2), even with the correct workaround options enabled, it ends up drawing the window behind the panels.

'Legacy fulscreen support' in the workarounds plugin does not work for me. But one can run wincfg and untick 'Allow the Window Manager to control the windows', although interaction between WM and Wine windows will be worse now.

I'm marking this as fixed released as the most recent compiz and wine combo in hardy seems to resolve this issue.

This is still affects me, in Ubuntu 8.10 x64 with newest possible compiz and wine. Gnome panels are always above the game (if it change and not change resolution of screen). I have checked workaround for fullscreen applications, but this doesn't help. My gnome panels are slightly invisible (alpha is set to 75%). In attachment is screen shot for game, those panels are visible in every full-screen game. nvidia card with 177 version of drivers (free drivers).

I still seem to get issues with this in Karmic, with panels showing on top of fullscreen apps in Wine.
Anyone else, or have I just broken something?

I get this issue with some apps in Karmic when wine changes the screen resolution (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/336932). It didn't used to happen in Jaunty. The wine devs said it was nothing to do with them, but was a compiz issue.

This bug still effects me, even with the legacy fullscreen workaround with the newest version of Wine and Compiz in Lucid (10.04)

I've got wine-1.1.44 and compiz 1:0.8.6-0ubuntu1~ppa1 in Lucid and it seems to be fixed.

I do have compiz's legacy fullscreen support turned off - maybe this is relevant? (Run ccsm and go to Utility/Workarounds), apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager if you need to install it.)

If it's an issue in compiz 0.8.4 but has been fixed in compiz 0.8.6, you can install it with:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:compiz
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
