Is there a reason that:

a) The Wine open/save dialog boxes don't show or follow symlinks and 
b) They show dotfiles?

I seem to recall a discussion on wine-devel way back on the topic of
dotfiles, but a quick archive search didn't turn up much of use. At the
very least I think it should be a pref, wading through lots of dotfiles
in your home dir makes it much harder to open files with wine, and
obviously non-technical users will wonder what is going on with all
these stranges folders that I never made......
