Winetest broken on Win98

So if anyone has been wondering why I don't run the tests on Win98 
anymore... I still do! The problem is that since 2008/05/08 something 
prevents winetest from submitting the results.

The 200805062030 winetest build works fine so that leaves a two/three 
days window where things went wrong. Unfortunately I have been unable to 
pinpoint a specific test that causes the problem.

Here's a log I generated with the 200805211000 build:

I let winetest run for 90 minutes (normally it's over in about 15), then 
Windows was frozen, not responding to Ctrl-Alt-Del, using all the CPU 
and I had to hit VMware's reset button.

The last test that was run is setupapi:parser, but according to the log 
it completed fine, and I can run it by hand just fine. Still according 
to the log the next test did not even start.

Unfortunately the list of potential suspects is quite long. It would 
help if I could at least cross-build winetest but I always get errors 
(e.g. due to d3dx9_36). What happened to the resolution to get rid of 
the dependency on MinGW libraries? Alternatively, where's the lastest 
version of w32api with d3dx9_36?
