Another problem is when you click on a failed test result box for an
OS with several test runs.  When you click on the specific test link,
you are sent to the page containing the differences for all the tests.
 At the very least, it would be nice to be sent directly to the test
in question.  For example, kernel32:actctx fails 3 tests in XP.  I
click on the box containing the XP results, and I'm sent to the page
containing all the differences for the tests run on XP.  I now have to
search again for the test I was concerned about, kernel32:actctx.
