Well, that's good to know!  Thanks for clearing that up.  Any clue what the particular misconfiguration might be?  I have never even seen that particular buildbot machine.  (I can volunteer another one through VNC for the buildbot maintainer to test with if that would help.)

I think there is still a generally good reason to be concerned though - quite a few tests are still set to skip on Windows that aren't on UNIX. (and the aforementioned "it's broken anyway" attitude is especially bad if, in fact, it is *that* close to working)
