You "should" be able to replace usr/bin/winefile. I haven't tested it though (and I suspect the FM you replace it with would need to accept the path as an argument). – RobotHumans Jan 24 '13 at 10:35
@hbdgaf - where is the line that specifies the FM in usr/bin/winefile? – cipricus Sep 5 '13 at 7:27
fwiw, I believe the window in question is called the file chooser. I couldn't find anything though – user1974 Sep 9 '13 at 23:51
