If you don't have a 3D accelerator(e.g. running in a VM), the ddraw d3d and 
visual tests will attempt to use the RGB software rendering device, which 
*is* slow. Running the visual test takes a few minutes instead of a few 

I've considered using the Reference rasterizer, which is even slower, as a 
fallback for the d3d9 tests, however, running the d3d9 visual tests in the 
refrast in qemu takes approximately 5 hours, so I dropped the idea. 
Furthermore the d3d9 refrast has to be installed separately.
