Ok, I've got an example attached. I'm currently cleaning up the registry tests
before I can/will start doing stuff with RegDeleteTree.

It turns out we had a lof of failures with this test on win98. It looks like
win98 doesn't assign a new handle when the same registry key is opened. This
means that the close test close the main handle and we thus have an issue in the
first test after that (which assumes to have a valid handle).

The attached file uses the GetVersion to check for win9x, is that acceptable in
this case? Or is just an extra RegOpenKey (with comments) enough?

The todo_wine is only there btw. to don't have an error when run in win9x 
emulated mode. That brings up another question. Should all test succeed in Wine 
regardless of the emulated mode?
