There is an interesting thing I just found - in F11 without the bool set I can
run MS Word 2003 in Crossover (i.e. effectively wine) and open a .doc file
without any AVC popping up.

However from a webmail interface opened in Firefox, and clicking on a .doc 
attachment, trying to open it via an association link to Word 2003 in Crossover
immediately gives an AVC denial for wine-preloader and suggests allowing the 
bool!  However the file does seem to open nevertheless!!
