See http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17938 for background.

Vitaliy closed this bug, saying it's an application bug that it
depends on seeing NTFS file system type for certian program features.
I don't think it should be a WONTFIX, as the only reason that change
was introduced was to enable _another_ program to install

Is there any reason we can't allow the reported file system to be
changed? I'm sure there are other applications that test for it and
change their behavior according to the file system type. A quick
google search shows at least one application that does
That install will likely now fail in Wine, because of this behavior.
