If run in a loop those tests fail (very rarely) for me on Win10 machine,
and I am fairly sure that I've seen failures on Win7 too.

Here's a related failure in a test that emits a lot of events for a
device with a smaller buffer to get DI_BUFFEROVERFLOW:


So some events have been missed.

Turns out there are some test that already skip on Windows if injecting
events fails. That's from my Win 10:

device.c:106: Tests skipped: We're not able to inject input into Windows dinput8 with events

Good to know. Thanks!
