[pkg-wine-party] Bug#724710: libwine-unstable:i386: wine looks for wine.inf in the wrong place

Package: libwine-unstable
Version: 1.5.30-2
Severity: important

$ rm -rf ~/.wine/
$ winecfg
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/infinity0/.wine'
wine: failed to update /home/infinity0/.wine with /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine-unstable/wine/../share/wine-unstable/wine.inf: No such file or directory

[then various things don't work, e.g. the Drives tab]

Using this hack gets things working again:

$ sudo mkdir -p  /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine-unstable/wine/../share/wine-unstable
$ sudo cp /usr/share/wine-unstable/wine.inf  /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/wine-unstable/wine/../share/wine-unstable/
$ winecfg

[then the "updating config" shows as expected]
