You either have the permissions set up differently (seems unsecurely),
or you're writing to your own files.  Wine, as a user-level program,
can't give extra permissions and so it's not possible to write to
read-only files.  Try opening up notepad and editing and saving
z:\etc\vimrc.  Access denied.
