I think you misunderstand. I wrote extensive tests _on windows_ that I 
used for this patch which where independent on the existing test in wine 
as i could not get the wine test to work properly in window, most 
likely, do to a lack of understand on the testing framework.

After i made the patch my tests worked in both places however I could 
not get my tests to behave in the testing framework.  So i tried to 
modify the existing test to work and found what i believed to be the 
correct test.  Evidently I was wrong.

I may still have my tests on my windows machine back in the office if 
they would be helpful.
