* ntdll:exception (All QEmu VMs)
  These are caused by a known QEmu bug. That bug got fixed^H^H^Hreplaced 
  by another bug in 1.7.0. See:

Also a test may have multiple independent failures. So it's important to 
look at the individual test failures and gather clues from the tests 
they fail on.

For instance:
user32:msg.html win7_newtb-w7u(0,1,2,7,8,9) xp_newtb-wxppro(4)
- There are 49 failures on the newtb-w7u VM and under a dozen on the 
  other TestBot VMs. The reason is that the newtb-w7u VM is set up with 
  a Japanse locale which causes extra failures. Note that one can get 
  more information about a given VM by clicking on the 'info' link in 
  the test results. Here:

  These extra user32:msg test failures in Japanese locales have been 

- The same test also exhibits specific errors in the Hebrew locale. We 
  don't have Hebrew or other LTR VMs in the TestBot but my Windows 7 VM 
  has one such test configuration: fg-win7u64-he.

- The remaining Windows 7 VMs have a group of 3 'region' failures, 
  and another unrelated group of 3 'message 31f' failures which appears 
  to be somewhat random (or at least does not affect all VMs). 

- My Windows XP VMs have a totally unrelated set of 3 'minimum timeout' 
  failures, which sometimes appear on Windows 2003 and Windows 8.

So as one can see things can be quite complex under the hood.

Here are some test failures I looked into and tried to diagnose a bit 
(all VMs, not just the WineTestBot ones):

* Bug 35573 - gdi32:fonts test_stock_fonts() fails on Windows 7 in the 
              Japanese and Hebrew locales

* Bug 35760 - gdi32:font test_fullname2() fails on Windows 7 in the 
              French locale

* Bug 33720 - user32:menu
  This one is intermittent.

* Bug 33718 - comctl32:propsheet Add button test failure

* Bug 33719 - comctl32:propsheet custom window proc test failure

And for some Windows 8 issues:

* Bug 35575 - gdi32:font Windows 8.1 failures

* Bug 34830 - rpcrt4:cstub fails and crashes on Windows 8

* Bug 34829 - wintrust:softpub crashes on Windows 8
