That's the problem of forcefully refreshing registry. If you don't do it -
some old cruft will get in a way of new stiff. If you do - you removing
perfectly good entries that user had there.
However things like file associations should not be overwritten. Especially
that they don't work after that:
$ wine start image.jpg
wine: configuration in '/home/vitaliy/.wine' has been updated.
fixme:exec:SHELL_execute flags ignored: 0x00000500
Application could not be started, or no application associated with the
ShellExecuteEx failed: Success
