What change do you want?  The ability for winetest to be able to
interact with the desktop?  I've tried enabling this before but it
didn't seem to have any effect.  I've been quite busy lately and
haven't had the time to keep on on winrash development.  I'd like to
turn over maintenance on winrash to someone else, if anyone is
interested feel free to email me and I can set you up as an admin on
the project.
