I am having some considerable problems dealing with a simple issue. 
In .wine/dosdevices, devices are listed followed by a colon like in dos. This 
makes perfect sense except that the colon is often used in UNIX to separate 
elements of a path description and has special meaning tto some programs. 
Under solaris this causes problems with the runtime loader which can't dlopen 
a filename containing a colon, and seems to be problematic for stat as well.

What is wrong with listing them without the colon so we don't risk these OS 
incompatibilities or perhaps adapt the code to accept the links with or 
without an appended colon.

Comments anyone ?
