It seems to me like those tests could be simply removed. The part that
is failing is just a preparation for tests reading from cache. And the
important part of those tests always fail on Windows (the comment says
that they fail on new Windows, but AFAICS on both testbots, they always
fail). Those tests are also marked todo_wine. It would be great to make
proper use of cache in our http implementation, but that will require
writing more tests anyway.

Don't hesitate to push more if needed :)
