It's a bit harder to maintain the tests for Windows since they are
mostly maintained by Volodya on Linux. I just checked running the tests
on trunk (script I use attached). And I get 5 failures. Which is not bad
given that at one point there where more than 50% failures on Windows.

Checking the nightly (aka trunk) builds might be more productive. But
any fixes are of course welcome regardless.
