Well. :) Not all of them. I downloaded binaries for regression tests 
from the site and
played with them. I haven't tested all of them, but the ones I tried worked.
Ok, I guess I am trying to get it working too fast. :) btw, I've just 
almost got mcs.exe
telling that I supplied "no files" (found stupid bug in opcode 
generation), but it got into "format problem"
and thrown an exception.

Ok. Alpha does function call only to an address loaded into a register, 
so I guess it might be
really just one case for alpha.

Ok, I will. I just hoped that there were such test cases. :)
