I have been providing patches to help the situation on all platforms.
I am currently tracking 11 patches that are test related (9 on Windows
- mainly Vista, but the directory-based listview failures should be
fixed on all platforms, 2 on Wine). These haven't been applied yet
because Alexandre went on holiday when I started my campaign against
test suite failures.

A few of these patches I have updated and resent as they needed todo
blocks adding for Wine.

I also kicked off discussions about different aspects of the test
suite failures, but only some of these generated responses.

I am specifically interested in increasing the timeout when running
the Wine Test Shell to handle various timeouts (specifically software
rendered D3D tests and MSI install tests).
