This should be fixed since wine 1.8.6-2 (see #845334), by not
associating some file types at all.

Did you run a previous version of Wine for your user sometimes in the
past?  Or some other version of Wine (not from Debian)?  Then that would
have broken your system.  Unfortunately there's no good way for us to
automatically fix already broken systems.

Or can you still reproduce this for a new user with an previously
unbroken account?  If yes, can you give me more details so that I can
figure out what's going wrong?
