A related problem with older Win3.11/win95 apps is they set values in
the autoexec.bat and to run Delphi 1.0 or borland BC++4.5 I have to
start wcmd in a terminal the run then autoexec to set the paths and
start delphi or bcw.
It would be nice to allow setting winecfg to allow some applications to
run c:autoexec.bat prior to running like you do with dll overrides.
