But winecfg is offer for the same problem, like any other windows

Attempting to run winecfg with fonts-wine version 1.8-7 and no
/usr/share/wine/wine/fonts symlink results in the same fonts warnings
and no visible application window at all.

Not that I think it would help anyway.  I cannot see anywhere the font
path configured in winecfg.  I also tried looking around for registry
settings etc before downgrading fonts-wine, without finding anything
that looked like it pointed to the fonts dir.
