Hi Alexandre,

for the first thing:
thank you for the tip, readlink -f "link/dir/file" works but it's allways a
extra step if winepath make this alone it would be much better/faster.

for the secound:
so winecfg makes an readlink every time started for every link in dosdevices to
get the mountpath of the symlinks?
