This is wrong.  It depends on the drive's default directory.  Tests are now in
kernel32/volume.c and are known to pass from win95 to winXY to prove it (part
of my comment #3 is obsolete: the tests are included since July this year).
See http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-devel/2010-July/thread.html as well as
bug #20887, comment #15

>Testapp to show what GetVolumeInformation
I don't know what it's doing, but you are welcome to extract kernel32_test.exe
out of test.winehq's wintest.exe and start that from any directory other than
your boot directory (C:).

cd X:
kernel_test.exe volume

Please post results for network drives, floppies, SUBST (I tested CD-ROM, USB
and Samba).  Do you get different results than what I described?

I agree with you that the best thing to do IMHO is to revert that patch until
somebody writes the correct code that looks up the drive's default directory
when applicable.  Fixing this bug would be especially welcome for Wine-1.2.1. 
I've listed in earlier comments half a dozen apps that fail to start because of
this sole issue and merited platinum in the past.
