So todo_wine skips the tests on Wine, yes. That's my point.

The link is was referring to was a test on Wine.

If I run the shlwapi/shreg tests on Wine I get:

[paul at penguin tests]$ ../../../tools/runtest -v -P wine -M shlwapi.dll
-T ../../.. -p shreg.c && touch shreg.ok
shreg.c:97:sExplen1 = (12)
shreg.c:99:sExplen2 = (43)
shreg.c: 45 tests executed, 2 marked as todo, 0 failures.
