A few intrepid hackers working on Win32 platforms reported similar
issues with Bravo, which uses Ampoule extensively. We chalked it up to
Win32 weirdness and told people to use better operating systems when
deploying Bravo. The only hack which seemed to alleviate the problem
was changing Twisted's subprocess management to allocate massive
(64KiB) buffers for the subprocess pipes instead of zeroing them out.
I have no idea what the correct answer is.
