How does thumbnailing LNK files work? You get a Windows icon path out,
which you have to convert to a *nix path - you'd have to use
~/.wine/dosdevices and do case-insensitive filename matching, and even
that would only work for LNK files created by Wine, those on a Windows
partition have Windows's idea of drive mappings which is probably
different from Wine.
