When using Finale 2007 Music Editor in wine (all new versions) it seems not to send heyboard signals to the program. Mouse does work, but no keyboard.
I didn't happend before I have actualized to XFCE 4.4.0, and persist in 4.4.1.
I hve to open a virtual terminal, and invoke a new desktop manager in a new X instance ( :1 ) to use it!!! (usually openbox, for beeng very light also). Then it works. So it's not Finales' neither Wine's fault, but XFCE's.
I use openSUSE 10.1, and xorg-x11-6.9.0-50.17.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Finale 2007 over wine (have not tried other applications)
2.Try to use keyboard in the program
usual work from the program, editing of music score
Really it seems it was a problem about ICCCM focus hint. Unmarking the option about that in window manager tweaks preferences, it works fine again.
I'm not using much Wine apps, but focus works fine with regular apps (Finale 2007 is acommercial application, I won't buy it to test and I don't really feel likre registering either)
An "xprop" on the window will tell more about what the application sets.
Is the window decorated? If so, does is show focused?
I've downloaded Finale 2007 demo and tested against Wine 0.9.32 and everything works fine.
I believe it's a wine issue.
Well, I don't know exactly which was the problem, but since I unchecked the ICCCM focus hint box in preferences, it has worked fine. And now it works even with that box checked again... Strange, but GOOD!!.
Nevertheless, I think I had something to do with XFCE4, and not wine, 'cause by the same time it didn't worked in XFCE4, in openbox opend from a new virtual terminal, in a new X sesion, it worked fine... but anycase, now it doesn't matter, it's working flawlessly....

Unfortunately, it's not really that simple. "It works with X" doesn't prove anything, the problem can be a race condition, or a different implentation of the standard, etc. And Wine is known to be pretty hacky, so I doubt it's a problem with xfwm4.
