I think the conclusion last time we looked at this was that this is
actually a characteristic of Explorer, not Windows, and so it's really
caused by the fact that most Wine users run the apps from the command line
not via the shortcuts. If you run Dungeon Keeper in the wrong way from the
command line in Windows it'll crash too IIRC.
