That's odd. According to the definition of the winetest_trace() function
(which is used to implement the trace() macro), when the debug level is
greater than 0 (which it is by default, and it should be if you set
WINETEST_DEBUG to anything other than 0), it prints a message. Are you
sure you used trace() and not TRACE()? There is a difference.
