Ah, figured out what the issue was (sort of). The proper 'fix' when using
winetools is as follows:

1. Run winetools.
2. Generate a C: folder.
3. _Immediately_ edit your config file in .wine so that instead of using
$HOME for your home directory, it should be "/usr/home/[username]" (or
whatever the full path of your home dir is). If you don't do that, hehe..
many many problems will occur.

Maybe editing the config file to allow for symlinks would solve the issue as
well, but that causes problems with recursive symlinks I would think (ie
/boot/boot in Linux >_>).
