No, but you might have misunderstood me - I meant a bug in WCMD, not in CMD.

As far as I could see, your mail did not state what Windows does.
That's what's important - Wine does what Windows does.

Very good to know.

A more efficient approach might be to open a bug, here:

It's a somewhat complex interface (IMHO) and you'll need to enter some
magic keywords to make sure that the right developers see your
particular bug.

That's out of my league, someone else will have to tell you what
keywords apply here, I don't know.  But opening a bug would be a good
start, anyway :-).
