I have to disagree. A native file system is wine's roots and there is no 
reason for the limitation. Up until recently it was the only option. I 
have been doing it that way since the 16 bit versions in 1996. Over that 
time this dual access mechanism has supported testing and the moving off 
of apps as they became available on wine. There is also no reason wine 
should behave any differently between a local and a native file system.

That said the original post still holds. Is this a known issue? Is it a 
wine issue? Is it an ie. issue?
