IMHO this disabling of tests based on OS needs to end.

it would be much better to have a configure option
--disable-annoying-tests or whatever so that those who need it can use
it and those who don't can run the tests on any OS.

or perhaps move those tests to subsequentcheck where the other annoying
JUnitTests are.

or actually iirc the PythonTest somehow manages not to pop up any
windows on Windows, perhaps whatever secret it's using to achieve that
could be used elsewhere too.
