It's not really better with skip_wine; since the test will never be
run on Wine it's useless for regression testing, and we won't even
notice when the bug gets fixed. If the test doesn't crash on Windows,
the right way is to fix Wine to not crash either, that's usually not
too hard (making the test succeed may be harder, but that's why we
have todo_wine).
