Wine VM86 exception handling bug?

I believe it is better to store binaries as arrays and use temporary 
files than drop many small .com binaries all over the code tree (for now 
I have 3 test programs about 30 bytes each). It is possible to 
comment/disassemble test cases instruction by instruction, if needed.

Also, not everyone can use git, and I believe diff/patch would fail to 
produce patchable diffs with binary files in them.
