Your program doesn't know anything about a Linux file system. Perhaps it did an
API call to see what the filesystem is and follows the result (VFAT, NTFS,
Network, CDROM etc. ).

Not possible, it is a windows program that has no knowledge about "logical" wine
HD's. The program "knows" that it is a Windows volume, and wine has to emulate that.
As far as I understand what you want is a way to make the emulated "L:" behave
the same way whether dosdevices/l: points to a mount point or not. Perhaps
something is possible with the dosdevices/l:: link that points to the device if
Did you happen to notice what the CreateFile() returns and what the LastError()
was in those cases?
