You might want to run the tests with WINEDEBUG=warn+heap, this will do 2
1. Allocated memory will be filled with 0x55's.
2. Freed memory will be filled with 0xaa's.

If something dereferences a structure it will use those magic values and
then crash with values close to 0x55555555 or 0xaaaaaaaa which makes
debugging easier. I just found a crash in crypt32 cert test that way,
which would be a good bug report as well. Those issues are normally very
hard to track down otherwise.
