Sorry but I have to disagree. "The obvious" is frequently not obvious. As I
asked before (but in slightly different words), is the Microsoft behaviour to
return this special value when passed a null pointer, or is it to catch a
segv and return the special value? And does the special value returned vary
It seems to me that half of what we are doing in Wine is figuring out the
facts that are not in MSDN but are important. A test is a good way of
documenting what we discover to be important, in a way that allows us to
check our conformance.
And what's the problem with a large test suite anyway?
