I am thinking of doing it under real windows. I built it twice under wine and the binaries are identical except for 6 bytes (probably date stamps), so if I build the same snapshot with the same compiler under Vista and the same build procedure, I would expect the the result would be similiarly differ by 6 bytes only, if the compiler/wine works the same way as compiler/vista.

I'll try it now and see how it goes.
