Remember that not all 'Crashes' on the mentioned site are real crashes. Most 
Vista tests I'm running have 'Crash' mentioned on those pages. The reason is 
that the generated results file is bigger than 1.5 MB and this means the file 
will only be sent partly.

If you're talking about the 'failed' ones with no good data (as it looks from 
you're patch), ignore the above.

I did some work on the parser (dissect Perl-script) a few months ago. You're 
output will not be handled properly (from a first glance). A normal test looks like:

a:b start <filename> <cvs-version>
b: w tests executed (x marked as todo, y failure[s]), z skipped.
a:b done (0)

As you're new output doesn't result in the 'done' line the parser will not 
correctly use that information. Maybe another line should be added at the end of 
you're output:

a:b done (some number not being 0 or 258)

The 258 is used for tests that timeout (0 being for tests that have run without 
crashes or timeouts). Obviously the parser (in this case it's actually the 
gather Perl-script) has to be changed to accommodate this new number.
