yeah .. it's possible to RENAME or DELETE the files ! Just tested it with some Windows tools - the windows' open file dialog that is used by most applications natively supports a context menu for file operation like rename or delete .. and that works ! it is not as dangerous as reading the files but seen from this angle not much behind ... 

IMHO it is okay if people want windows applications running with wine to see and handle their files but for reasons of security default wine configuration should deny every kind of file or directory access out of whatever is linked to windows drives like "C:" ...

So long
