Yes, I believe so.

What about you?  (or George?  or Susan?  or...)  Do you
think it's still the case?  Can you provide an example
of the wrong results?  Can you show it's no longer the

My contribution here was simply to agree (11 years ago!)
with several others (including Juanma, who has contributed
a lot to Emacs development on w32) that the bug _should be
left open IF, as they confirmed, it's not yet fixed on w32_.

I still feel that's the right approach.  Do you disagree?

Please leave this bug open.  Closing bugs is not
equivalent to fixing bugs, even if some might find
it makes for nice-looking bug-reduction graphs.

Confirmed bug reports are valuable and helpful, even
those that might not be fixed anytime soon.
