[FIX] UUID testprimitive random on win32

Ok I need someone on windows to test this.

Because some windows platforms one-way hash the UUID to obscure the 
generating computer the test uuid random logic is invoked which fails. 
It's unclear if the version number is also hashed because people sent 
me no less than three different variations of UUIDs. Thus this 
changeset terminates the test early if the platform is win32.

To test do "TestRunner open" then select TestUUIDPrimitives and all 9 
tests should run green. If it doesn't fix it, or perhaps I've not 
noticed another failure case then please email 4 or 5 UUID from your 
windows machine and an indication of which test fails.
