With Windows XP, I noticed the message sequence is different when you
have the "Windows XP" theme vs the "Windows Classic" theme.

Also, it felt as though the optional flag was not being honored. I
compared against dlls/user32/tests/msg.c and it looks like
ok_sequence_() needs the following:

@@ -279,6 +279,9 @@
+        /* silently drop winevent messages if there is no support for them */
+        else if (expected->flags & optional)
+          expected++;
         else if (todo)
