Is it really on EACH PROGRAM launch?
Here recently (cvs-wine-010703) I get similar behaviour
whenever I start a new session with X
== usually this means when I crank up my computer.

~/.wine/cachedmetrics.:0 exists but wine starts to build
another ~/.wine/cachedmetrics.:0.0 as if there was no file before.
Then I can start as many times or/and as many programs with
wine as I like without rebuilding fontmetrics until the next boot.
I had no time to investigate more on this problem.

Is there a new undocumented feature in ~/.wine/config?
Should it not read "cachedmetrics.:0.0" in the first place?

XFree 3.3.6 here with xfstt
