I want to speak out against Dimi's idea. It is fine as far as renaming 
files in Wininit.ini, and maybe performing the delayed RenameFileEx. It 
is not the right place, however, for performing the Run and RunOnce 

The reason is that Run and RunOnce may rely on future events happening. 
I know places where RunOnce was a full fledge GUI program which required 
further user intervention. Do we really want to pop that up when wine EXITS?

I think that is the right thing to do. If someone clicked "do not reboot 
Windows", maybe becasue that's what they are used to have to click, they 
still expect the windows to be ok the next time.
