file dialog crashes

I'd like to make another observation regarding the file selection dialog.

If I mount my CDROM drive and add a link to /dosdevices/, Wine's
regedit.exe hangs in the file open dialog.

I can do "ls /mnt/cdrom" in an xterm with no problems at all.

So my first thought is that the CDROM has a bad block, and that it
happens to be inside one of the .exe files in the root of the CD,
exactly where it has it's icon resource.

I did a "cp /mnt/cdrom/* /root" which revealed that autorun.inf has bad blocks.

Not a big problem so far.  But now take a look at "top", specifically

'wine-preloader' is at 2.2 GB, with 360 MB of those resident.  And
it's running regedit.exe.

If anyone can give me any pointers about where or how to fix this, I'd
be happy to take a look.
Otherwise it'll go to Bugzilla (where I'll probably have to create an
account - sigh ;-)).
