Since C:\ cannot ever be a network share in Windows, then I don't see why Wine
should ever present it as a network share to applications. The argument that
C:\ should always be reported as DRIVE_FIXED is a valid one, regardless of
whether $WINEPREFIX/drive_c resides on a network share or not. Otherwise it
breaks Windows compatibility.

Photoshop CS2 (Platinum-level application) also refuses to install to a network
share. So it cannot currently be installed to C:\ if $WINEPREFIX/drive_c is on
a network share.

For the record, I also have my /home directory auto-mounted as a network share
when I log in. My Wine environment resides at ~/.wine (so I can use it
regardless of what computer I log in from)
