As the person who wrote the original prototype of the win32 reactor, I'd
just like to say: You rock!

You probably should try 
    py22 bin\trial -p twisted.test -r <reactor> -v
as well, i.e. *all* of the tests.

attribute... by default I think it's set to AssertionError.

Interesting.  I don't have a win32 system I can play with this stuff on
anymore, but you obviously have more of an idea about win32 programming than
I did :)
