I have already sent links to documents on MSDN that state how to make a 
service run on an interactive desktop. As some of the tests are a little 
distracting graphically, we should probably do the dialog as you 
suggest. I guess this is really up to the people running the test machines.
If the source to winrash was in the Wine tree I would already have fixed 
it by now.
