Did queryRegistry break?

Richmond Mathewson via use-livecode
I ran a test for a user in the forums and was surprise to find I can't
get strings back from the queryRegistry function - here's his thread:
<http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=29420>

Any of you having luck with queryRegistry in recent builds?

I searched the bug DB and came up empty.  Given how rarely I use Windows
I figured it might be good to check in here so see if others can confirm
this before I write a bug report, hoping perhaps I just missed something.

The specific key he tested is:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\SERIALCOMM

In my VM my Win10 install doesn't have that, but even testing values I
can confirm in RegEdit like this one from the docs, returns empty with
no error info in the result:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.livecode

listRegistry still seems to work, though when I list
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\   SERIALCOMM is there. (seems like
it should be)

If I ignore serialcomm and try queryRegistry on one of the subkeys returned
by listRegistry, its still a no-go.  Does indeed look like its broken.

One can use the shell to do this.. *get* shell("reg query
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\KeyboardClass")

I used KeyboardClass because SERIALCOMM doesn't exist for me. (windows 10)
 but at least when i tried it I got back a helpful message telling me that
it doesn't exist.
