mysql-test-run.pl does not copy subdirectories of mysql-test/std_data on Windows.

While symbolic links are used on *Nix systems, on Windows, we directly copy the contents to a new folder - mysql-test/var/std_data_ln.

As it currently stands, only the files from std-data are copied, subdirectories and their contents are not.  This causes a number of failures of the funcs_1 suite on Windows.

This only occurs on 5.0.  5.1 and 6.0 versions of mysql-test-run.pl do not do this.

How to repeat:
Run the funcs_1 suite against a version of 5.0 on Windows and observe the failures:

innodb_storedproc_03           [ fail ]

^ The above data file *is* in mysql-test/std_data/funcs_1/ but is not copied.

Suggested fix:
Fix mysql-test-run.pl so that subdirectories and their contents are copied.  This is a very simple fix.
