Bug Description

When running the Gómez Peer under Wine (including upstream), the application is still visible on top of the lock screen.

Nothing running should be visible on top of the lock screen and this is a security concern.

To work around this I run Wine with WINEDLLOVERRIDES=wined3d=

Wine can be blamed for this, but X (or whatever provides the lock screen - Gnome?) shouldn't allow applications to "break through" the lock screen.

Attached photo shows part of the application where it has updated its GUI. On a full update the full GUI is visible.
