[pkg-wine-party] Bug#758589: [wine-development] wineapploader broken if wine is installed

Package: wine-development
Version: 1.7.24-5
Severity: normal
File: /usr/lib/wine-development/wineapploader


in wine-development's wineapploader the following test is true if stable
wine is installed, thus development wineapploader using stable wine:

# now try the directory containing $0
if [ -x "$appdir/wine" ]; then exec "$appdir/wine" "$appname" "$@"; fi

I suggest to just remove that whole paragraph. Otherwise add $suffix in
there, too.

The previous "# then default bin directory" test should always be false.
I see no use for it, so I'd remove it, too.

So on a Debian system there are only 2 of 4 working possibilities (for
the wineapploader in the wine-development package):
- explicit WINELOADER
- wine-development (wine$suffix) in PATH
