Actually ZoneAlarm checks MD5 or some other checksum, but it can also be
configured so, that it doesn't care about those. There is option where I
can specify that "Athenticate program by full path name only"... name
says all (tried it, but in this case, it doesn't help because programs
are launched from different directories). I think it was sometime called
"This program changes frequently" but maybe I am not remembering it
correctly, or it was somewhere else.
It is possible to disable the warning by application. But because
ZoneAlarm thinks these programs are different, it isn't. Zonealarm only
sees that, these programs are launcehd from different directory, they
have different checksum, wine-test-whatever executable has different
name (because date is part of the name), ZoneAlarm doesn't see same
program. At least to my knowledge ZoneAlarm can't be configured with
wildcards, so that it would check only part of the executable name.
But anyway, it is okay to me if you don't want to program temp
directories not to be random, I just have to disable winrash and thus
winetests from my win2k3 server.
