That's not surprising to me.
1. MiniBrowser exercises the WebKit2 interface, which the WinCairo
port does not yet support.  There is a partial implementation, but I
have not had time to flesh it out.
2. WebKit.exe is used to launch Safari with the user-built WebKit
framework.  Safari will not run using the WinCairo port of WebKit, as
there are large bits of functionality that require the WebKitInterface
libraries shipped by Apple.

I should probably modify the WinCairo targets to exclude the
WebKit.exe project to avoid confusion here.

MiniBrowser will eventually work, but not until I get time to finish
the implementation. :-(
