Wow... this seems like a wierd problem... frankly, I don't think it's a dumb
question, because this is perplexing... by all of your configs, everything
should be working... in truth, this is something that I don't think I could fix
unless I was at the control stick and able to poke at things until I see what's
up... but, in an effort to help you in a situation where I can't:
Could you post a direct tail of the output from wine?
post a bit more from your wine.conf
post your full fstab, and the output from mount, just so we can look at it.
(hopefully your fstab isn't 800 lines...)
