           Summary: Possible filename/-attribute handling problem with
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.15.
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://appdb.winehq.com/appview.php?appId=2409
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-binary
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: boeser.wolff at web.de

When trying to connect to Mankind's servers, the game checks for updates. this
is unsuccessful and the error message
"Unexpected Error occured while patching Mankind. (A disk error occured or
C:\Program Files\Mankind have been modified by some other software. Please
reinstall Mankind"
is displayed. (Also see http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5388).
The application then causes a page fault on exit, see
Doing a "+file" trace, I found Mankind is looking for files that dont exist:
and Mankind.npr (a file Mankind.1.231.238.npr does exist however, so I created a
link to it)
These files are not created during installation.
If I create these files (eg. "touch ..."), the error message changes to:
"Mankind was unable to start: files are missing or damaged. Please install
Mankind again".
The file Mankind.npr is found, but deleted when Mankind launches.

Steps to reproduce:
- install Mankind: (get it from www.mankind.net)
- launch it; doesnt matter wheter from the directory it was installed into, or
from anywhere else.
- click connect (requires a username and password from mankind.net).
