Does MacOSX sets $HOME and/or $PWD?

Also, from when's your base CVS version? Alexandre commited a patch of
mine related to exactly this a few days ago.

Actually, durin wineinstall, ~/.wine/config is not used. A temporary
config file is created instead.

You may have problems with this as Wine is not a CPU emulator, so it
won't know what to do with the binary code in notepad.exe.

Have you installed the Wine libs (dlls) so that wine (or the dynamic
linker) knows where to find them?
