Now reading it again there's something I forgot to tell :)

It works if the working dir is a real dir. But it doesn't if it is a symlink
to another place, then the cwd of the new process is like the old one
before the change.

I have (old-style config):
[Drive C]
"Path" = "%HOME%/.wine/fake_windows"

And in there is a link to another directory. Altough the _chdir into this
linked dir reports success it doesn't seem to work.

And wcmd doesn't see the link either (C:>dir).
