I'll patch the manpage.

This was added on purpose, see #745346 and
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36040 (Please support an
environment variable to disable the lingering wineserver).

I assume wineserver persistence will stay disabled at least until such
an environment variable is available, therefore tagging as wontfix.

Not sure which default to use than, personally I've no opinion on this.

As workaround to get wineserver persistence you could set

Unfortunately this seems to be broken upstream as long as
/usr/lib/wine/wineserver exists (reported at
https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40811). So currently you have to
edit or remove that file to get persistence.
