Ok, well that's a positive result at least. If I get time I'll
investigate why 3.3 isn't working properly on Windows.
You shouldn't be getting all those test failures - I tried a couple of
your tests that failed on my box, and they work fine. It's probably
another /r/n problem somewhere, but I checked and I have committed all
the fixes I made. Strange.
