Virtual Desktop not working

OS X 10.9.5

PlayOnMac 4.2.8

Wine 1.7.46 (1.7.33 doesn't work either)

ATI Radeon HD 5750 if it matters


Not matter which method I use to open a virtual desktop, it seems to not work. The application opens without any desktop in sight. Console log seems to be of no help unless I'm completely missing something. Is there debug flag that could help find out the problem?


Log through standard "Run" button:

Log through "wine explorer /desktop=test,1920x1080 notepad" in the "PlayOnMac Console" window:

I think the Wine's "mac driver" does not support emulated desktop feature. I checked the early Wine 1.7.x changelogs and couldn't find a confirmation though, I wonder where I read that...

Seems to be the case: https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34374
