Can't remember offhand.
I was annoyed enough by it to create the symlink at one point.

No, that's not true..  The behaviour of the dialogs depend on the app somehow.

AFAIR, I've seen Qt dialogs activate the .wine folder as a selection
or cancel the dialog instead of descending into it, and Gtk dialogs
completely unable to display hidden folders.  But I've also seen that
some Qt apps work fine.

Sorry I can't provide any more details, it's not like I make a habit
of remembering this stuff :-).

(... And it still wasn't my main point, either ;-).)
