To work around the wine annoyance I usually do (after running wine once
after the update):

find ~/.local/share/mime -name '*wine*' -exec rm {} \;
rm ~/.local/share/applications/wine*.desktop
update-mime-database ~/.local/share/mime

And everything gets back in order to the way I had it configured before.
The original idea isn't mine, I've seen someone suggest this on the
forums or here, can't remember where or who suggested it though.
