Is that a service option or what? I don't really know
anything about Windows services. If you can fix this issue
in winrash please do so.

I really wonder what share of the reports come from winrash
instances, but I don't think you underestimate it. Removing
this possibility would hardly buy anything for us, but a
flag similar to bRunningUnderWine could be added indeed.
Just patch it into winetest or send me some code and I will
do the gruntwork.
