If the driver is buggy then it's OK for the test to fail. We don't need
the tests to succeed on every single Windows machine out there, just on
a reasonable sample. Either the failure is common and it means the test
is useless and should be removed, or the failure is rare and we can live
with it. We certainly can't rely on Wine drivers being identifiable, as
this may break some apps.
