By running Visual Basic under Wine, of course.  Can't we do that?
Even if not everyone can do that, that's ok; not everyone has
to compile the test.  We want the compiled test to be run nightly
along with the C/C++ regression test, IMHO.   So I don't see any
reason to separate it from the Wine regression test.

I do kinda see a good reason to separate all the regression tests
out from the Wine tree, though: there are many implementations
of Win32, and all of them can benefit from having a common
win32 regression test.  So I'd happily go along with keeping the
VB regression test out of the Wine tree if we did the same
with the C/C++ regression test...
