The current working directory is the directory you were in when you
issued the 'wine' command. As far as the app is concerned that will be
its current working directory as well, so jre and lib should be relative
to that. AFAIK absolute paths will always be relative to the 'drive
letter' symlinks in $WINEPREFIX/dosdevices: the C: symlink points to
$WINEPREFIX/drive_c, so that's the root of the default drive.
