It's not so much a misconfiguration, as an issue with the fact that trial on
Window s is failing to rename its _trial_temp folder, because there are
files inside it that are open. I've opened a bug on it over on <
http://twistedmatrix.com/bugs/issue1387>. It's going to need a rethink on
how _trial_temp works, because my instant thought on how to solve was
"symlinks" and python doesn't support them on windows, mostly because
windows' own support of them is a tad on the "dont' ask, don't tell" side of
things, and NTFS-only anyway.

MFen tracked down an error involving "r+b" mode. Seems windows handling of
it is insane. See <http://twistedmatrix.com/bugs/issue1386>. This could well
be a python bug, or a feature of windows.
