[New-bugs-announce] [issue17065] Fix sporadic buildbot failures for test_winreg

New submission from Jeremy Kloth:

test_winreg fails sporadically on the AMD64 Windows buildbot.  Looking at the test, it appears that concurrent runs of the test would fail if different processes attempted to modify the test key at the same time.

The attached patch resolves this by using a per-process unique test key name using the process ID.
