> Hi Rémi, thanks for the feedback. I wanted to make the tests pass on Windows Server 2003 and 2008 because testbot.winehq.org still supports both of them (although they are not enabled by default). After fixing the message tests for those two versions, I was going to drop the message test workarounds for Windows 2000 and earlier, which are no longer supported by the testbot and are definitely causing more trouble than they're worth. If we really do not care about anything before Windows 7 anymore, can we remove the XP, 2003, Vista, and 2008 VMs from the testbot, or at least add a note to the testbot user interface?

Even if we have removed those VMs from regular rotation, I'd like to ask 
that the machines remain available for manual testing if possible. Some 
tests are not interesting unless run with older machines, and I've often 
found the testbot useful for this.

(Along the same lines I think it's a mistake to drop older test machines 
for *all* tests, but that's a discussion for another time.)
