I wonder why people feel the need to brag about that...

That's because when you launch 'wine program.exe', the
current directory is the directory where you are when wine
is launched, not the directory where the .exe file is.
In many cases in Windows, the current directory when an
executable file is launched is the app directory itself (but
this is a feature of the Windows explorer, not the operating
system itself)

Do you think it will help Wine to find files ?

Write a shell script to change the current directory to 
the one to need and launch wine after.
