To me it seems silly to blanket accept broken programs.  Known 
exclusions could be catered for such as ntdll tests on a W95 box 
(those fail, right?) either client-side (i.e. within winetest.exe) or 

The current situation supposes that the person debugging the problem 
has access to the Win box that generated the fault, and so can 
recreate the problem by running the original xxx_test.exe executable.

By reporting back the error, someone can fix it without needing the 
specific version of Win98 that demonstrated the error.

(just my 2 euro-cent worth ;^)
