Hmmm, I meant to send this two days ago...

I have made tons of fixes to the kernel/path test and it should now work
much better. I just uploaded the new version of the tests compiled from
my sources. One can download them from the usual URL:

Because this executable invokes itself to test CreateProcess. And each
time it exits it prints statistics about how many tests passed and
failed, although the child processes are not actually performing any
test. So these messages can be ignored.

Should not be the case. The code does:
	dwType = -1;
	dwRet = SHQueryValueExA( hKey, "Test3", NULL, &dwType, NULL, &dwSize);
	ok( dwType == REG_SZ, "(%lu)" , dwType);

So we should either get -1 or something that makes sense, not
0xcccccccc. This needs to be investigated more.

We should print them in just one format, decimal or hex, whichever makes
more sense.

Yep, I think this is priority number one now. Running the tests on more
platforms would only return pretty much the same list of bugs again and

      Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
