Hmm... what about this:

compile winetest.exe in two versions - one in console, one in gui mode.
Let us call them winetestC.exe and winetestG.exe

Add a third wrapper winetest.exe to contain both versions in the same 
way that
all the regression test exes are contained.

Let the wrapper read a command line option and start winetestC.exe and
winetestG.exe respectively.

This adds overhead, but only two times what the .obj - files in
programs/winetest/ take up.
