For me this bug is not fixed; tested with a clean setup on multiple PCs:

1) install Ubuntu 9.10 amd64 in a VM
2) install Wine 1.1.33 per winehq.org instructions (had to install the wine1.2
package as installing wine package gives error messages)
3) Copied over a complete wine environment with just one application
4) ran: # WINEPREFIX=/home/user/Deadlock/ winecfg
5) Changed windows version to Windows 98 (game requires this or no sound),
removed all the desktop integration symlinks stuff, added D drive to be the
CDROM, click OK.
6) Run winecfg again; still lists my C and D drives as configured
7) ran: # WINEPREFIX=/home/user/Deadlock/ wine "C:\\Deadlock\\DEADLOCK.EXE"
8) Now get warning message "Warning: could not find DOS drive for current
working directory '/home/user/Deadlock/drive_c/Deadlock', starting in the
Windows directory.
9) at this point the game runs but doesn't see the CDROM; when i relaunch
winecfg both my C and D drives are gone: "You don't have a drive C. This is not
so great. Remember to click 'Addd' in the Drives tab to create one!".

This works on my other system with Ubuntu 9.04 amd64 and Wine 1.1.32. It didn't
on my new Ubuntu 9.10 + Wine 1.1.33 system, so i tried to reproduce it in a VM
and i could.

Any suggestions?
