Rather than using one URL for all the messages, you could also cycle through
URL after testing them initially.  It would have the same performance of
using the same valid URL, but keeps the variety in the test.

I am attaching a rough patch to show what I mean, and so I can give everyone
an idea of the impact this type of change makes.  The following are times
from calling runtest for the editor tests of riched20.dll before and after
the patch.

real    1m6.924s
user    0m42.067s
sys    0m7.148s

real    0m11.539s
user    0m3.876s
sys    0m0.956s

Hope this helps.

Because the patch is rough I am not posting it to wine-patches.  Feel free
to use or not use it.
