I imagine that Wine mounting Z:\ as / off the bat is kind of a security hazard, guessing you could probably just make a simple batch file that goes to Z:\mnt and tries to delete every folder starting with all sub-directories in sda1, sda2, home, etc.

Well I have no sympathy for anyone deliberately running known nasties even under simulated environments.
Whether you like it or not there is ALWAYS a path between virtual machines and the real one it is running under - as there HAS to be to make resources available.

WineHQ recommend never to run wine as root. Of course that's inconvenient in Puppy land but it may be worth doing for frequent wine users. In Fatdog64 I run wine as user spot by default, and only allow running it as root for specific apps that I believe don't to pose a security risk.
