Forgive my lazyness and my bad english, but IMHO most of discussion 
resembles MS Corporation behaviour by trying to decide what is good for a 
user, and what is not.  Hey, just let the user or his admin to decide 

IMO there should be just one checkbox in winecfg that rules

Right, but then it still should be nice to find a way for Wine to know if 
KDE/Gnome is set to autorun win32 apps.  And a way to toggle this 
KDE/Gnome setting.  This way could let user/admin to manage autorunability 
from winecfg by clicking mentioned checkbox.

Otherwise user/admin would complain about Wine inability to integrate with 
the rest of a graphical system :-/

And of course, the autorunability should be disabled by default when 
graphical environment knows/says nothing about autoruns.  Just likes all 
my neighbouring win-admins do for their customized/unattended XP setups. 

Hm, someone should show this thread to KDE/Gnome/FreeDesktop folks, IMHO.
I am off this task ;)
