This is a positive, it means before on Windows it was possible to 
somehow log in as root and get special privileges. It's good that the 
tests show that won't work anymore.

If there is some windows equivalent to the root user you can make the 
ROOT_CREDENTIALS command add it in auth_script_run

If there isn't an equivalent, this test needs to be skipped on Windows; 
I would suggest a patch to add a UNIX_ONLY auth script command. I can 
look at this in a bit or if you have a patch send it to the list.
