This seems like a different issue. In fact, this will be solved if we also
had a proper definition for the CDROM, wouldn't it?

Ideally, they would all go through the same configuration. In fact, right
now there is little difference between wine app and Winelib apps. In a way
the Windows registry (which will contain all of the above configuration)
is the equivalent of /etc in Unix, whould be nuts to have different ones
for different apps (as common practice :)).
