Maybe. There is a reason why windows does not allow switching the drive letter
for the currently running windows install. However, wine is definitely more
lenient as you actually can do it if done right. This bug as filed is invalid
from a broken config.

Most people do not need to switch drive C so this is kind of an obscure thing
to deal with.
