Default Re: Wine + VSync forced in nvidia-settings doesn't work

Aaron, hello once again. Any progress on fixing bug #839481?

BTW, after thinking about this bug a bit I can state that the opposite feature is also required. I mean, there should be a way to force-disable VSYNC through the drivers. I came to this conclusion after running onto a buggy app that always created D3D context with D3DPRESENT_INTERVAL_DEFAULT, which essentially translates into always enabled vsync by default, either when running native on windows or under wine on linux. On Windows I can use driver CP and/or registry settings to force-disable VSYNC no matter the apps request D3D to use, while on linux I have to patch Wine sources in order to achieve the same behaviour. Having a setting of such kind implemented in linux GPU driver would be very welcome.
