Just so you know, we are trying fix this problem. Basically something seems
to go wrong when we imbue a stream with the dll version. The identical code
works perfectly when linked statically. Of course it works fine in a shared
library on Linux, mingw, etc. So it's odd that the dll version is flakey....
If we don't find a solution shortly, we will patch the test so it shows the
failure and doesn't halt things...

Where would this 'code go', in the script that runs things or patched as part
of the test code? If it's in the test code, I wouldn't spend time on it as
this will be resolved soon...
