Just got Wine 1.1.13 on Ubuntu 8.10 tried to map D: to my Windows partition /dev/sda5 /media/DATA but Wine wouldn't keep my choice and reverts to /media/cdrom0.

Found out that permissions for ~/.wine/dosdevices/d: were root only and couldn't change them.  So I deleted d: & d:: and made new symbolic links

$ sudo rm -r /home/me/.wine/dosdevices/d*
$ ln -s /media/DATA   /home/me/.wine/dosdevices/d:
$ ln -s /dev/sda5   /home/me/.wine/dosdevices/d::

which fixed my problem.  

Is this a bug as I never had this problem before?
