> Hi Jörg,

The difference is that I'm creating a test.avi symlink to an avi file in the
working directory before launching winetest.
This avi file is also used by tests/avisplitter.c (skip) and
tests/filtergraph.c (no skip) and I'm creating another msrle.avi symlink to
the same file to avoid skipping in tests/mmio.c.

The file used is ED_1024.avi from the Elephant Dream short film. As I'm
using winetest_latest.exe, I also need to use  the -d switch to be able to
skip the temp dir creation and put symlink in it.

BTW, tests/filtergraph.c also tries to use a test.mpg file (no skip), but I
didn't found one under CC when I added this to my automated test script.
I'll add one this evening now that I've just found
