Thanks, that provided enough of a clue. It turns out this is a
regression in Wine, as I was able to build an earlier version of Wine
and it passed the tests on my XP VM. A bisect yielded this:

    include: Use DECLSPEC_HIDDEN instead of DECLSPEC_IMPORT for dll exports.

    DECLSPEC_IMPORT interferes with delay imports on MinGW.

I went further, and found out the difference: in register_class(),
passing an import thunk as the lpfnWndProc field causes the test
failures. Using a simple wrapper is enough to cause test failures even
if DECLSPEC_IMPORT is used for DefWindowProcA(), so I don't think
there's a compiler bug here. Similarly, using GetProcAddress() is enough
to fix test failures if DECLSPEC_HIDDEN is used. So it seems that early
versions of windows are, for some reason, verifying the window procedure
against the actual address of DefWindowProcA().

Probably the cleanest thing to do is work around this by using
