OK, I'll buy that, but when I forget and try to run Wine as root I get
messages from Wine saying it won't runs as root. I guess it's possible
that it's failign so early that he doesn't even get that message, but
that means he's running as root and he didn't shell into root with
root's environment, or he took the time to cd back to this account.

Overall pretty strange.
