Wine advises me not to have compiz enabled when I run it.

I like compiz being enabled (I have compizconfig settings manager installed)

Is there a simple/quick way I can disable it before running wine and enable it after running wine please?

thanks

Looks like it can be done by
metacity --replace &to turn compiz off, and
compiz --replace &to turn it on. The '&' markers cause a new process to be created, so that the existing process can go on to the next command (try it without the '&' in a terminal to see what I mean).
