It does not work here either (I get a crash). Fortunately you don't need
it with Pegasus, see below.

What version of wine are you using? The --debugmsg option has been
replaced ages ago. You must now run wine like:

WINEDEBUG=+reg wine ...

I have in my home directory (H: for wine) this script:

$ cat mozilla
 echo $0
 unset TMP TEMP
 /usr/bin/mozilla "$@"

Under Pegasus option_>hyperlinks I have "H:\mozilla"

Make sure the option "Find browser automatically" is disabled.
