What I did is a solution totally out of wine. I changed the File-Dialog 
code to load KDE native, and use the Unix-2-windows Wine API(s) before 
calling the Win32 API. Same for a few Edit boxes that hold file paths. 
Inside was all Win32 only the highest GUI level was abstracted in a 
Class that hides it all. (Different file implementation in Makefiles). 
This and the Z: drive in setup and I was covered.
It is an outside wine solution. One could submit it as a Winelib only 
code. I cannot send my code as it is not Licensed to me, and any way it 
is in C++ and using a very strange GUI lib.
