Yes i'm talking about those.

From what i have seen the lines with
start <filename> <cvs-version>
a:b done (0)
are not output from the test itself, but wintetest which runs the tests.
so they should still show up.
But i havent verified this.

The only problem i see now is that we can't set the exit code and rune winedbg.
So how could we inform winetest that the test crashed so it can set a proper done
status, that can be examined by dissect.
Or dissect finds crashed tests by a certain string that is only output on a crash.
Maybe you have a better idea?
