Like i said earlier.. this is for Wineskin, which is built to be used by many people on many machines for anything they want to run... it can't be set up machine or program specific.... so my needs are a bit different than standard running Wine.  But the solution I found works decently enough, everything Wineskin does now seems to work ok so far without any gecko prompts... just kind of a messed up way to have to do it, but so far I still have Wine running stock... which I want to keep.

so don't worry about it, I have a usable work around.
