Link creation not working _properly_ under 2.6 kernel?

Yes I did try wineboot, but like I said, it isnt a problem with
creating the shortcuts so much as it is with putting them in the
proper folder. And it seems to only happen when there is no
wine-created wine folder in the menu, and only with certain
installers.. I'm not totally sure but I will try several runs with a
clean .wine and clean menu with +menubuilder and see what I can come
up with. Will report back later with bug # and a better idea of whats
