Perhaps because - if my understanding of that "bug" is correct - this is actually a design flaw, due to a change in the way in which WINE now handles directory structures / file-paths (again, if my understanding is correct, WINE now uses Microsoft Windows directory structures / file-paths exclusively and does not recognize 'nix directory structures / file-paths)?
Not exactly. The /unix switch still works fine, but now Wine is just a bit more strict about file paths. The actual problem seems to be that start.exe isn't installed into Wine's standard path when a wine prefix is created or updated.

Maybe.

Their issue appears to be similar - though there are minor differences (for example, they're seeing error messages, which I am not)... Strangely, the bug is listed as being "resolved" over on the WINE Bugzilla.

They pointed out as fixed by the following commit:

You can try to install a development version or wait for the new stable to come and downgrade while waiting.
