As Nikolay already pointed out, this change was intentional. At last WineConf
there was the decision that we do no longer care about Win2k test results, so
I removed the dynamic loading code in the commit above.

@Hugh: Is there a specific reason why you want to run those tests on Win2k?
I don't think adding back the dynamic loading makes sense, unless you can
convince the rest of the Wine developers to continue Win2k support and to run
each commit on the corresponding testbot. ;)
