  We can't set PATH just before run test from the IDE - there is no
Pre-Run step.
The MSVC8 IDE has Envoronment field in Debugging page of the Project
dialog, but this field can be changed only manually. So we should either
%BUILDDIR%/bin in the PATH before run IDE or copy locale.exe and
to the tests directory at Post-Build step. Both solutions are not
convinient as for me.
