That is exactly my problem.

Yes I have.  I regularly post my testing results in the AppDB and bugs in 
bugzilla for my target app (MS Money 2004).  I have responded to 
request that I do regression testing but I have come to dead end with a 
problem that no one has got back to me on.  I will help all I can but I am 
limited in my own technical knowledge.
