program name clashes

a problem which just popped up in the newsgroup:
Imagine a program called start.exe (or notepad.exe or regedit.exe,
etc.). Invoking 'wine start.exe' will not run this program, but the
start.exe that comes with wine. The only workaround is to do
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="start.exe=n" wine start.exe. This neither logical nor
intuitive, instead it is rather silly. At least 'wine ./start.exe'
should actually run the program intended, not some obscure program the
average user has never heard about.
