The one that Wine figures out for the new program.

There's no such thing as a default version ;-)
Wine figures it out from the DLLs the program uses if no version is forced.
Hmm, come to think of it:
Unless we actually pass all wine cmdline parameters (--winver, --managed etc.)
on to the wine child process (not sure about that right now, I think we do),
the new process won't use the same forced winver value as the
parent process uses.
Is this a problem ? Should this info be passed to the wineserver to globalize
Oh, BTW: I'll rename defaultWinVersion to cmdlineWinVersion.
Much better name.
