That's certainly not true of the sound tests. Those will fail on some 
machines depending on whether you use wineoss or winealsa or winearts, 
etc, and edpending on your soundcard. Some graphics tests may also be 
sensitive to the X bit depth or other environmental issues.

It's still possible to run the Linux tests via 'make test' and that may 
make winetest redundant on Linux to some extent. But we cannot claim 
that the 'tests run under Wine/Linux anyway'.
