You wrong. As I said, tests are _allowed_ and some really _supposed to_ test
invalid cases. Where Wine 100% correct about complaining. But the goal of
each test is either succeed or fail. If it succeeds then there is no bug.

Again there are not failures in the tests your ran! There is nothing to fix
here. Move along don't waste everyone time for something YOU DO NOT LIKE! Or
send patches.

Conversation is over. DO NOT WASTE everyone's time!!!
