Bug Description

Hello, this bug is original reported to Wine, but Wine developer thinks this is a windows manager bug. Since it only affects unity ( works on gnome-classic and XFCE ), I report it to Ubuntu and hope the Unity folks will have a look.

Bug 29401 - thunder installer in unity doesn't draw itself on start up

1. Download thunder:
http://down.sandai.net/thunder7/Thunder7.2.4.3312.exe

2. try to install:

$ wine Thunder7.2.4.3312.exe

expect result:
Draw a complete UI, users can click "next" to install
actual result:
Draw only a transparent box, but if you know where the "next" button is, you
can click on it and continue to install

Only affects unity:
$ unity --version
unity 4.24.0

can be work around by setting "Allow the window manager to control the windows"
to false.

--- snip ---
Comment by Wine developer:
The app changes the opacity several times to do a fancy transition effect. It
works fine with XFCE, so yes, it's a Unity bug, it sounds like it doesn't
refresh the opacity.
