Speaking of this, I tried to make a config file with no [Drive X] sections
at all, and Wine wouldn't load (It complained about a missing
L"C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM" directory, even though I had the apropriate entry
in the file).  I added a dummy [Drive X] section back into the exact same
file, and wine loaded just fine.  It looks like the parser might be
broken, but I haven't had a chance to look more closely at it yet.
