Menu builder fix found

Basically all that should be done (and I dont know why this isnt done
anyways) is to have wine (or more likely wineprefixcreate) make
~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/profiles/(user)/Start\ Menu and
~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/profiles/(user)/Start\ Menu/Programs
....  Then also make winecfg _not_ default to creating
~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/profiles/(user)/Desktop as a symlink to

This can be verified by starting with a clean .wine dir and clean
~/.wine/dosdevices/c: and running wineprefixcreate .. Then run winecfg
and make sure to uncheck the Link to box for the Desktop shell folder
in the Desktop Integration tab and apply the change.  Then manually
make ~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/profiles/(user)/Start\ Menu and
~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/profiles/(user)/Start\ Menu/Programs

Then get the winrar installer and run it.  Check all of the shortcut
creation boxes after the install is finished.  Then check the above
mentioned folders.

While I'm at it though I should mention that I have seen several
installers fail if they can't find
~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/system32  because for some reason wine
doesn't create it either, not even as a symlink.

have seen yet!
