Hi everyone, just a simple question.  According to this bug, winefile 
and explorer are bit-by-bit identical, but yet 1 crashes when run with 
no command line, while the other does not. As the subject of this email 
says, explorer crashes but winefile doesn't.  This particular has no 
problem with running winefile to open his explorer window, but I agree 
with comment 3 on this one, that users should be able to run explorer 
with no command line args to get an explorer window.  That makes more 
sense to windows users who run explorer.exe to open up Windows 
Explorer..  Is this something that is worth looking into?  For right now 
the bug is wontfix because we do have winefile working, but if someone 
wants to reopen it to figure out why (if it isnt supposed to) explorer 
crashes, feel free.
