I've gone through my registry entries, and they all say Windows even 
though my Windows directory is actually /mnt/win_c. The path statements 
in my $HOME/.wine/config also refer to c:\\windows, not to \\win_c\\

XWine doesn't really "do" anything at all. It just makes it easy for you 
to do things by providing a graphical interface.

I notice that Duane Clark answered that your programs stay on top 
because in your config "Managed" = "N" -- XWine has nothing to do with 
that. Either you or the config file you copied from changed that from 
the default which is "Y". In my config, "Managed" = "Y" and that's 
always been the case with or without XWine.

Duane mentioned installing CUPS. In addition, I also have "printer" = 
"on" in the [wine] section of config.
