Wine and process "names"

Good day, everybody! I have recently done two things:
A. I stopped trying to get Wine to use SDL for a graphics display -- the
entire idea just sucks.
B. Upgraded to 0.9.12
This has presented me with something quite odd
Windows programs running in Wine had their argv's exposed to Linux.
Let me clarify: When you run 'ps', the first word in the "CMD" field is
usually a program's argv and is referred to as the process's "name",
but of course you all know that. It seems that Windows processes have
their names exported to Linux in the same way, I literally had this in
the 'ps' output:
13885 pts/1 00:00:21 C:\windows\notepad.exe
Is this a new behaviour of Wine 0.9.12, or have the virus writers
finally caught up with us?
The real problem with C++ for kernel modules is: the language just sucks.
