To intrude upon your series here - how do you find gallium-nine in terms of stability? And is there anything that works fine with "normal" wine, but not when using gallium-nine?

I've played the Dawn of War games, and they all work perfectly. Mechwarrior Online seems to render just fine (if very slow) with default wine, but has some glitches with gallium-nine (vertices get screwed up, but it's very fast).

Gallium Nine is a BEAST compared to vanilla and staging when using AMD!

As you already used it, you sure saw the differences with the other 2 versions in terms of fps boost, fluidity and stability.
I almost always found out that Gallium Nine not only gives you more fps (sometimes 2-3 times more) but it prevents the fps-drops that are extremely annoying and happen most of the time when using vanilla Wine.
I honestly don't care to play a game at 80 or 100 fps, if then it drops to 10-15 every time you move the mouse around, I will gladly switch to a solid 30 fps but with no further drops.
Gallium Nine gives you that (plus more fps), it raises the minimum fps a LOT, just check the F.E.A.R benchmark screenshots I did when I was using a 7850, and compare the minimum fps between the 3 versions.
I played a lot of other games with that Pc and I remember that with a game (inMomentum) I had like 20-30 fps with Wine (with drops), a slightly better performance with Staging (25-35) and a solid 60fps without drops with Gallium Nine!!
With your hardware you can try a freebie like Planetside 2 that runs great on Wine and amazingly with Gallium Nine!
I hope it gets added like it happened with Wine Staging..

To answer your second question,
yes I had some problems with Company on Heroes where the shadows where rendered too dark (wine 1.9.10) and with Rome: Total War, where the performances didn't change when switching from vanilla to G9 (no idea why but I didn't investigate too much).
Aside for these it was always a big improvement!
