Mike's patch mentioned in #1 is moot
because all SMB support was removed from Wine
with http://cvs.winehq.org/patch.py?id=12382 in 
March '04, with comment "Removed the no longer used 
SMB file I/O support, we can't do reliable
file I/O in user space anyway."

winecfg appears to be the only place in Wine that 
mentions smb/cifs, and all it does it autodetect
the mounts and let you create drive letters for them.

The URL for the UNC patch mentioned in #0 is stale; it's now at
All it did was try to resolve UNC paths by looking at
/etc/fstab.  Perhaps we should reconsider that approach
(or possibly a more limited one that only looks at
shares that have been assigned drive letters already).
The objection to that before was probably that Wine
should do full-on CIFS, but that objection was rendered
moot when CIFS support was removed as unreliable.

Or perhaps we should wait for Linux to support per-user mounts.
But even then we might consider the other method
as a fallback for when running on operating systems 
that don't support that.
