Hmmm, when we use todo_wine the test itself, i.e. the ok() statement, is
still failing. It's just that it's in a block where we expect failures
and complain about successes.

Bah, ok, my previous message was not clear<g>.

But I still consider these tests to be primarily conformance tests
because that's much more useful than tests that verify that we preserve
the old bugs. Fortunately with the todo_wine mechanism they are also
pretty useful for regression testing.
