yes, that's exactly what I had in mind, it was implied in the "notifying me 
if it doesn't" part :-)
checking for "Unhandled exception" or for instance deadlock stuff like  
"err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection..." in the log file should be trivial.
But that's probably not going to happen that often anyway, and of course it's 
not meant as a substitute for "real world" tests, rather as a "zero cost" 
additional check.
