But you are running an application - winecfg; winecfg definitely isn't
replacement for wineprefixcreate.

Better (and I think proper) way:
Have no idea if current docs/FAQ/Wiki mention a replacement command for
deprecated wineprefixcreate but if they don't they should.
"Note: wineprefixcreate is deprecated and shouldn't be needed anymore.
WINEPREFIX creation and updates now happen automatically when needed."
...should mention a replacement, for example: "Use wineboot instead if you
need to force Wine prefix creation".
