32bit 7zFM.exe closes unexpectedly with error "The system cannot allocate the required amount of memory"

Description of problem:
Sorry if I suck at reporting bugs in WineHQ but I don't know how to do a proper retrace, leaving the bug report there ignored since wine 1.9.19, but I just don't get it why other distro work as reported in Wine AppDB
TLDR The 32bit 7zip cannot access drive Z (the / directory), it just crashes...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This happens on both 32bit and 64bit Wine prefixes.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Grab any 32bit 7zip installers version 9.35 or later (see add. info)
2. Install it and run 7zFM.exe
3. Open Computers
4. Open Drive Z
Crashes with the error "The system cannot allocate the required amount of memory" and exits briefly after OK-ing
A line triggered in the console just when the error occurred:
warn:heap:allocate_large_block Could not allocate block for 7e0c28f1 bytes
Can access drive Z normally like the 64bit counterpart
You can grab a history of 7zip installers at http://filehippo.com/download_7zip/history/2/
Anything 9.22 or older works though...
As of now, 32bit 7zip version 17.00 still crashes when opening drive Z whereas 64bit 7zip works correctly.
AppDB is not perfect. One user installs the app and sees it can decompress a .7z file. I doubt they went and purposely clicked on Z: and it works for them.
I can reproduce your issue, but I'm not sure if it is a Wine bug or an app bug. If I ever have time I will try to debug it further, but you're best off trying to ask upstream to look at it.
FYI: Fedora does not compile any custom patches or features into the Wine package. It is a vanilla Wine-staging build.
