What I seen is that IShellFolder_ParseDisplayName being called with some path.
It starts from top "Desktop" and calls SHELL32_ParseNextElement. Which in turn
calls IShellFolder_ParseDisplayName with "Desktop". There is nothing that brakes
this circle and wine runs out of stack.

shlfolder test will do it right from the start. One more is winecfg: click on
"Add application" button.

I didn't research this problem - don't have time for. Don't know if this is
because I have more drives/more directories then you or something else. My tree
is not modified except not relevant things (GetAttributesOf & shell exec).

I have shell and relay log if you need it.
