That would be my hope, however my observation is that wine may somehow 
change things such that Win things the registry in corrupted. If I 
create a new .wine dir and start fresh and then 'boot' the win parition, 
win things the registry has been corrupted. I hope this is just 

This occured twice. I somwhow fowled up the dll overrides and apps did 
not run correctly. In order to check out the apps I booted the win 
partition. Each time it complained about a corrupted registry.

I will try it all again to test it. (I suppose I could change the 
permissions to make the dir ro)
