When to report a bug
You tested with a clean Wine directory (default location: "~/.wine", z: drive -> / link exists, no DLL overrides).

More explanation? I don't want some windows exe see my root dir.

Removing the z: drive will prevent Wine from running anything outside the wineprefix. It may prevent some apps from working properly, so doing that is not supported.

Thank you dimesio for your reply, but i am still not clear about this question:
Games running inside wineprefix also won't work properly? (I don't mean production software like MS Office or special apps intended to run on wine )
What type of apps are affected?
Detailed reason?

Apps/games running entirely within the wineprefix should work, but keep in mind that "entirely within the wineprefix" would also include any data the game or app reads/writes. The main problem that occurs with removing the z: drive comes from users not really understanding that (or forgetting what they've done), and filing bugs for problems they've created themselves. So if you're asking this because you plan on filing a bug, I recommend first retesting your app/game in a clean, intact wineprefix to make sure the problem still exists.
