You misunderstood what the meaning of todo_wine is - it doesn't mean
"these tests aren't quite right yet", it means "wine is buggy in this
place". So yes the tests will run on Windows because it's assumed that
every test case proves some fact about the way Windows works. Todo_wine
just stops the test suite complaining if Wine is known to be buggy.
