"*" no longer does anything, and should be removed from registries. 
It's original intent was to force using native dlls over builtin dlls 
whenever found.  It encouraged people to copy all the dlls from a 
windows install into their .wine, and was therefore removed.

I will have to assume that "*autorun.exe"="native, builtin" was blindly 
copied from CrossOver, as there's no autorun.exe in Wine.
