Thanks! Overall, these changes look ok. Some minor comments:

Rather than ifdeffing out some tests, I would rather see the rpc-winreg
test be converted to the new torture API and having the individual tests
marked as known failing. AFAIK these tests pass against Windows, so it
would be a shame to disable them against Windows as well.

Please don't move functions within the file unless there's a reason for
it. It makes it harder to review.

The gotos in the recursive ldb delete function seem to make the code
more rather than less complex and they each only save one line. Any
chance you can remove at least one of the two labels?

Having the patches applied to the mailing list post is nice because it
makes it easier to review and comment in-line where necessary.
