opengl32: work around a crash in glGetString

As I mentioned before this requires a test case. I remember from the gl log that the program didn't create a WGL context at all. It isn't allowed to make opengl calls because of that.
You should figure out why that is done. Either some other check in the program failed due to which it wasn't able to create a context OR the application is looking for some strange behavior. Perhaps without a context (if Windows allows it) you get some GDI software renderer string back or so.
Anyway at this point it sounds like a workaround instead of a fix for the real bug.
