For those of you that don't know, I've got a Google Summer of Code
project to make a better test suite for wine. The goal is to test
graphical applications to find bugs that aren't tested by the test
suite, and to prevent regressions that aren't prevented by it.

While programs with installers can be tested, they increase the script
complexity quite a bit. Eventually, installers will be tested, but
simple applications with no runtime dependencies are ideal for

So wine-users, what are some of your favorite applications that have a
small download available and work (at least somewhat) well in wine?

For comparison, the ideal type of applications are things like winscp
(http://winscp.net/eng/download.php) which has a portable executable
for download. The portable version has no runtimes needed, doesn't
need a config file (automatically creates one if needed), and works
well in wine. Testing it under autohotkey actually found a previously
unknown bug (http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18455). Now it's
time to find some more similarly hidden bugs :-).
