Wine and WinNT wine.conf dumb question

I had the same problem! Here is an experiment to try:
type "ls /windows/c/" and then press tab a couple of times
at a bash prompt. When I did this I didn't see the WINNT
directory! I have no idea why. If I actually press return,
then the directory is there, and I am able to cd to it
with no problems. But when shells (I've tried both bash and tcsh)
try to complete, they never seem to pick it up.
I presume that the wine problem is another symptom
of the same problem.
The way I worked around it was to create a symbolic link
tree in my home directory, where everything points to the
actual ntfs partition. This has the advantage that you can
(for example) remove the symbolic link to "normal.dot" and
then Word will create another copy in your home directory,
and not complain. Also, you don't risk stuffing up
your NTFS partition.
If you would like a little perl script to make the
symbolic links, just tell me and I'll send you the
one I used.
I would be very interested to know what the actual cause of the
problem is, though.
