Emulating a Sparc on x86? Cool, we were just discussing that today.

I came up with the exact same list today, using a 15 years old Sparc 32 (it's probably slower than QEMU on a decent machine). But I got a segfault in VMS in line 525 of uaf_decode_plug.c. Could not find any reason for that.

I actually feared worse results. I will fix some of them. The MSSQL, Office and RAR problems are in Unicode conversions, this is trivial.
