I would mark the tests broken for Vista and Windows7 but I would not
eliminate them for Windows 2003 and lower.  Right now, the conformance
is to WindowsXP SP3.  Do the tests work there?

Also, are we going to move from WindowsXP to Windows7 anytime soon?  We
may have 'buy' time to get this fixed without using the tables from M$.
