If you read several tests, you will notice that :
- we don't use GetWindowsVersion()
- instead we detect old windows thanks to its odd behaviour (see for 
instance [1])
- we mark broken() for some "bad" values returned by some (old) windows

If you don't understand the broken keyword, imagine you're writing some 
code, in 2000.
You didn't notice a corner case where your function returns a wrong 
value. Then, you fix your code in 2011.
In this example, you will have a broken() that catches all systems 
running the old code (2000 <= version < 2011), and an ok() when version 
 >= 2011.

And michael is right : wine should return the right "ok()" value, not 
the "broken()" one.
