The point may be moot. Though logically, if the directory is usually
hidden then wine controls how it looks and the user does not normally
care. In the case of missing directories it seems reasonable to create
them for consistency and conformity. If the user chooses to change,
fine. If the link or the directory is missing then the standard fix up
would be to recreate them.
