I've just realized that unixfs has a problem with the symlink stuff. It 
evaluates symbolic links in UNIXFS_get_unix_path and then doesn't find a DOS 
path for /home/mjung in GetDisplayNameOf (If there's no drive mapped to '/', 
that is.)

The symlink evaluation is done to get rid of the 
'/home/mjung/.wine/dosdevices/c:' prefixes in unix paths. I guess we should 
get rid of the generic symlink evaluation in unixfs and implement something 
especially targeted at those prefixes?

I guess this should be considered a bug in unixfs, so in my opinion it would  
be ok to apply the shellpath-patches. In a standard setup with Z:\ mapped 
to /, everything is fine. And even if it's removed, it's still better than 
with the current solution.
