There are two cases:
- <windows/system> is populated with some executables. Calling them directly
causes immediate crash
- for testing, I had comctl32.dll in the directory where the control-spy
applications are. I took me some time to find out why even --dll
comctr32=b still resulted in the use of native comctr32.
In both cases wine violates the "principle of least surprise" in my eyes.
