[Wine] Really slow startup due to fonts reading

My wine has begun starting really really slow. Using strace, it seems it is using about 15 seconds or so on reading X font files. It also seems like this happens after I run "fc-cache" to rebuild the X font cache in "/var/cache/fontconfig".

I have a hard time finding detailed information about how wine reads fonts. I have seen some indication, that putting font files in "~/,wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts" would make wine only read those, and not the X fonts. It just doesn't seem to work that way :-(
Can anyone shed a light on some of this, maybe a pointer to somewhere to read about it?
