That was the missing step.  I was already copying reassemble_test.exe
into the wireshark-gtk2 dir, but I didn't copy the manifest.  After
doing that the test ran successfully.

So, the test needs to build the exe, copy reassemble_test.exe and
reassemble_test.manifest to the wireshark-gtk2 dir, then execute the exe
from there.  I think that will be easier than trying to fiddle the path.
