I would suspect this is coming straight from glibc. If it was coming from
winelib, specifically msvcrt, I believe you would have to use a windows-ish
path, i.e. "Z:\etc\fstab". That is how this whole thread got started, did
The simplest way to be sure is experimentation. Remove the / mapping from
the config file, and see if /etc/fstab is still read in as expected. If so,
it seems the whole / mapping thing is a non-issue to winecfg.
