[kernel32/tests] Skip WritePrivateProfileString tests on Win9x/WinME

I've been trying to fix the tests on Win9x for quite a while now. The
addition of alternative data is easy (Win9x/WinME adds some extra
newlines before a section start). I already had to put in some timeouts,
to have most tests succeed, a while ago. But still the tests don't
always succeed. Even raising the timeouts doesn't help in all cases.
It looks like Win9x/WinMe have some obscure way of deciding when to 
write profile changes to disk.

test.winehq.org nicely shows that the number of test failures, for this
particular test, differs on the same platform (and my boxes as well).

I've left the different return values for Win9x in for the rest of the
tests to leave at least some kind of documentation in there.
