Many thanks, i use that since the release. But i noticed that
winecfg is messed by "DLLs" like Makefile, some .a library etc. It
probably doesn't hurt anything. Maybe generate the DLL list based
only on folders (not folders + "root" files)?

Yes. That double listed DLLs in winecfg (with asterix + without
asterix) come from manually setting the DLL in winecfg and after
that running winetricks setting all the dll to builtin. Unfortunatly
the non-asterix verision wins, because the entries are latter in the
list. So winetricks may not do what one could except (all builtin).
I'm aware of that now, so again it doesn't hurt me.

Thanks again for that.
