Package: libwine
Version: 1.8.6-5
Severity: normal

I noticed the following message printed to my terminal from some GUI
application I started from there:

wine: invalid directory "/home/sven/.wine" in WINEPREFIX: not an absolute path

Apparently the program was trying to run winebrowser from one of my
.desktop files under ~/.local/share/applications/, those look like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/sven/.wine" wine-stable start /ProgIDOpen pdffile %f
Note that WINEPREFIX is in quotation marks here, due to the
Debian-specific patch debian/patches/debsuffix/winemenubuilder.patch,
and wine does not like this: it expects the first character to be a
slash and not a quotation mark, see libs/wine/config.c.

I've confirmed that the wine 3.0 and wine-development debian packages
no longer generate these files automatically under basic usage,
winecfg, launching windows programs, etc.

If there is a reproducible way to cause the file to be generated in
the latest releases, please feel free to reopen.  Otherwise, it seems
like this is now correctly handled.

Best wishes,
