It's nice to fix all the test failures when running them in Wine. We however 
have several tests that still fail on Windows so how can we be sure the test 
results in Wine are correct? Some that are failing on a lot of Windows boxes:


I've just picked some that fail on different versions of Windows. There are also 
several tests that consistently fail on a particular version of Windows.
