doh123 you don't get it yet.
mshtml part of wine that forces the install gecko. Triggers for this are many including the applications call for help and some game installers.
If no application interfaces with mshtml or the ie active X control through any means this includes html help files, gecko will not install. Even if gecko cab is placed in the simple to install from location. It just avoids having to ask to install.
There are a few ways outside wine to deal with the filespace duplication. One is lessfs. Other is duplication systems that allow hardlinking.
Really the mult geckos are not a major problem for me. Best long term solution is really improve activex emulation and mshtml so that the native binary hack is not required any more.
Basically you are trying to solve this the hardway. If gecko does not install many applications don't work currectly. Downloading and help files and other key things fail. Heck some games even using mshtml to get updates.
