I know the reason now. In the gnome launcher ~ is already in effect. I tried

nautilus ~

and I got the following error
Could not find "/home/john/~".

So instead of
xdg-open ~/.wine/drive_c

the following should be in the launcher command
xdg-open .wine/drive_c

This works on gentoo and ubuntu intrepid
