Oh, good question, and I think the answer be the reason why it's not
working here (*slaps self*).  I'll apply the patch if you can confirm
that it works with some Ms Windows install.

I just launched the VM and checked what kind of Ms Windows set up this
is and it's a "Windows XP professional 2002" with VMware Tools
installed, and all the files on it have last modification date in 2004
or earlier.  Apparently I stole the already set up VM from my dad's
computer on which he used VMware, somewhere in 2004.  I then converted
the image to raw and always performed my tests with -snapshot on.
