Problem with regression tests getting stuck

I tested wine with 3 different compilers at this time:
- orignial RedHat's gcc 2.96 (The_Bad_Thing);
- gcc3 patched to hell Redhat gcc 3.1 (better but not good)
- gcc 3.2 from tarball "The source, Luke." ;)

2.96 doesn't pass the tests,
3.1 too,
3.2 from source passes. 

(and I did a _bunch_ of tests.)

if you want to say "fucked up", I'm ok (ask to guys ;))
if you want to say it's clean, I don't agree in any point.

described by gcc team (and others), gcc 3.2 is about 5% slower than 3.0
(don't know why)
