Does not happen here, neither with native Linux nor Wine, so all
I can offer is speculation:

1. $OSFONTDIR includes “.”;
2. in your document you specify a local font directory (via
   fontspec) that is included with aux.scan_external_dir();
3. there’s a symlink in one of your font directories leading to
   that subdirectory or the font files therein.

If none of the above applies, then how exactly did you generate
the names database? Can you reproduce it and do you have a log?
