I just wanted to test the 2.0 version without searching for newer 
versions of libs needed (which are, as far as I can tell).
(I come from the windows world and am quite new to linux, so this was 
the easiest way for me ^^.)
But in general, wouldn't it make sense, when some app run by wine 
launches a native linux app, to convert paths it gives to the linux app?
